Five Days in Ft. Worth, Day Four
Tadao Ando, it consists of five pavilions surrounding a 1.5 acre pond. The 2,500 plus pieces in its permanent collection boast the usual superstars of Modern art, from Pollock to Serra to Picasso. And yes, the obligatory Warhol is there too. But the main attraction is still the site itself. The buildings look as if they float on top of the reflecting pond and it's worth at least having lunch in the cafe that edges up to the water. Or if you're particularly flush, do dinner. The food is gourmet and so are the prices, but it makes a lovely topper to the day.
