The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest art museum in Texas and one of the oldest museums in the western United States. The Modern was chartered in 1892 as the Fort Worth Public Library and Art Gallery, but the name and mission have evolved over the years. The 25 women who founded the Public Library and Art Gallery sought to bring a different sort of culture to the historically cattle-focused city. The Library and Art Association became two entities in 1910.

The Modern and the Library are presenting an exhibition of the museum's archives, including historical photographs, publications, correspondence, ledgers, and other museum ephemera, such as historical tickets and membership paraphernalia.
