What to do in Fort Worth: September

The end of September is a weird time.  It's not October when most of the major fall events start; and it's not summer anymore when you can spend the afternoons/evenings by the pool.  But just because the summer is over and fall hasn't quite kicked in yet- doesn't mean there aren't things do around Fort Worth this month!

Go see the Maya and Mythic Sea exhibition at the Kimbell Art Museum.  It's the special event running from August 29, 2010 to January 2, 2011, featuring stone monuments and hieroglyphs, exquisite painted pottery vessels, and a lavish assortment of precious goods crafted from jade, gold, and turquoise.  Also at the Kimbell Art Museum, starting tomorrow, Michelangelo's First Painting: The Torment of Saint Anthony will become a permanent resident. 

Right next door at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth presents "Vernon Fisher: K-Mart Conceptualism."  This is a survey of the artist's entire career to date, incorporating paintings, sculptures, and installations from the late 1970s to the present, from both public and private collections in the United States and Europe.  This runs from September 25, 2010 to January 2, 2010

Looking for something to do downtown?  Every Wednesday through December 29th head to  Scat Lounge to hear Adonis Rose perform.  

For one special night, the Concert on the Square presented by KXT 91.7 will  be at the 8.0 Restaurant and Bar on Sundance Square September 23rd. It will feature an exciting slate of national acts as well as up-and-coming local and regional artists.   Tickets are $8 for KERA/KXT 91.7 members, $10 for non-members and can be purchased online at www.kxt.org.

Be sure to make time for one of Fort Worth's longest running shows: Four Day Weekend Improve Comedy until December 11th.

Running from September 17th until October 30th is the annual Hangman's House of Horrors.  It is featured annually on the Travel Channel’s “America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions.” In its 22nd season, Hangman’s proudly donates all net proceeds to local charities.

During the weekend of September 30th to October 2nd, Christmas in Cowtown Holiday Gift Market, put on by the Junior League of Fort Worth. Christmas in Cowtown Holiday Gift Market is a juried show of over 130 exhibitors where merchants from across the country represent a wide range of product categories from home décor to jewelry.  Admission is $10.  A three day shopping pass can be purchased for $15 and there is no charge for children under 5.
