The site of the future Kimbell Art Museum is announced

Seven months after Kay Kimbell’s death, the board of directors of the Kimbell Art Foundation announced jointly with the mayor of Fort Worth the selection of a nine-and-a-half-acre site for the proposed museum to house the Kimbell collection and future acquisitions. It was city-owned land adjoining the site of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, in the heart of what is now referred to as Fort Worth’s Cultural District.
