Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at the Kimbell

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at the Kimbell

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15), the Kimbell Art Museum will offer a selection of programs celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Latin America and Spanish-speaking communities. Visitors can participate in on-site and virtual opportunities, including drop-in art-making activities inspired by the permanent collection, a film series exploring archaeological discoveries in South and Central America, and two dual-language story times on Facebook Live.

The second edition of “Learning to Look,” the Kimbell’s free publication dedicated to young art lovers, will premiere during Hispanic Heritage Month. It will highlight an early painting by the Spanish artist Joan Miró, exploring how he used bold colors to express new ideas in his Portrait of Heriberto Casany. “Learning to Look” is offered in both Spanish and English and will be available for pick-up at the museum in fall 2021; a digital edition will be available online. Families can also sign up to join the mailing list to receive future editions: https://bit.ly/learningtolook.

Hispanic Heritage Month programming is supported by the Nuestro Kimbell committee, which advises and helps shape the Kimbell’s ongoing efforts to foster meaningful, inclusive and accessible museum experiences for all.

ABOUT THE KIMBELL ART MUSEUM

The Kimbell Art Museum, owned and operated by the Kimbell Art Foundation, is internationally renowned for both its collections and its architecture.

The museum’s 1972 building, designed by the American architect Louis I. Kahn, is widely regarded as one of the outstanding architectural achievements of the modern era.

Willie Nelson at Billy Bob’s in November!

Willie Nelson – November 20, 2021 

Country music legend, Willie Nelson will take the stage on Saturday, November 20th. A friend of Billy Bob’s since the very beginning, Willie will return for his 58th show at The World’s Largest Honky Tonk. His first show took place on April 5, 1981 just 4 days after Billy Bob’s opened. Willie has been back regularly since then, even hosting six of his annual Fourth of July picnics here and performing at Billy Bob’s Grand Re-Opening in 1989. With a seven-decade career and 200 + albums, this iconic Texan is the creative genius behind the historic recordings of Crazy, Red Headed Stranger and Stardust.

 

Tickets for the concert go on sale starting Friday, August 6th at 10AM.

With a seven-decade career, Willie Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor, and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. In recent years, he has delivered more than a dozen new albums, released a Top 10New York Times’ bestsellers book, again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, been honored by the Library of Congress with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, received his 5th degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul, headlined the annual Luck Reunion food and music festival during SXSW, launched his cannabis companies Willie’s Reserve and Willie’s Remedy, and graced the covers of Rolling Stone and AARP The Magazine. In July 2020, Willie released his album First Rose of Spring – an atmospheric soulful showcase of beautifully-written songs and poignant performances. September 2020 brought a memoir with his sister and pianist Bobbie Nelson titled,Me and Sister Bobbie: True Tales of The Family Band. For 2021, he released a new studio album in February —That’s Life, Willie’s second album of standards and classics made famous by Frank Sinatra (his first, 2018’sMy Way, earned Willie the Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Solo Album). The two legends were friends, musical colleagues, and mutual admirers of each other’s work. In June 2021, a collection of his thoughts on America, family, faith, and music hits shelves as a new book titled Willie Nelson’s Letters to America. These creative endeavors as well as new songs and performances that add to his classic catalog, find Willie Nelson rolling at an artistic peak, writing and singing and playing with the seasoned wit and wisdom that comes from the road.

Juneteenth in the Fort!

Juneteenth in the Fort!

Juneteenth FTW Celebration

June 19, 1865 signifies the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas to take control of the state to ensure that all enslaved people would be freed. The Emancipation Proclamation, issued by President Abram Lincoln, had been signed two and a half years earlier and it declared that “all persons held as slaves within the rebellious states are, and henceforward shall be free.”
Juneteenth, short for June Nineteenth, honors that day and the end of slavery in the United States. It is considered the longest-running African American holiday.
Celebrate the official end of slavery in the US with Opal Lee and her walk and a full weekend of education, empowerment, and entertainment.

This documentary (not rated, 2019, 51 minutes) explores some of the segregated nation’s safe havens and notorious “sundown towns” through witness stories of struggle and indignity as well as opportunity and triumph. The film chronicles how in the 1930s a black postal carrier from Harlem named Victor Green published a book that was part travel guide and part survival guide.

PBR’s Elite Unleash The Beast Returns to Dickies Arena

PBR’s Elite Unleash The Beast Returns to Dickies Arena

For the second time in as many years, PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) elite Unleash The Beast will buck into Dickies Arena in Fort Worth to hold the fan-attended PBR Fort Worth Invitational Aug. 28-29.

The bull riding action begins with Round 1 at 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, August 28, concluding with Round 2 and the championship round at 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, August 29. All 30 bull riders will get on one bull each in Round 1 and 2. Following Round 2 on Sunday afternoon, the riders’ individual two-round scores will be totaled with the Top 12 advancing to the championship round for one more out and a chance at the event title.

Tickets for the two-day event go on sale Monday, June 14 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com, PBR.com, the Dickies Arena Box Office, or by calling PBR customer service at 1-800-732-1727.

Last season, PBR’s elite Unleash The Beast debuted inside Dickies Arena, with Jose Vitor Leme (Ribas do Rio Pardo, Brazil) going a near perfect 2-for-3 to clinch his league-leading sixth premier series victory of 2020.

Leme rebounded from a close 7.32-second buckoff aboard Dixie Explosion (M Rafter E Bucking Bulls) in Round 1, with a Round 2-winning, 89.75-point ride on Milk Man (TNT Bucking Bulls/Hart Cattle Co.) to advance to the championship round atop the event leaderboard.

As the last man to leave the chutes inside Dickies Arena, Leme clinched the victory when he covered Boogie Bomb (Blank Bucking Bulls/Cooper) for 88.25 points, the top score of the championship round.

Earning a critical 120 world points, Leme further his stronghold on the No. 1 ranking, expanding his lead No. 2 Joao Ricardo Vieira (Itatinga, Brazil) to a then season-best 429.59 points. The Fort Worth win was Leme’s second consecutive event victory following a golden-finish the weekend prior in Salt Lake City, Utah.

As the season progressed, Leme punctuated his 2021 campaign by capturing his career-first PBR World Championship at the first-ever PBR World Finals held in Arlington, Texas, at AT&T Stadium. Going a torrid 22-for-34 (64%) in 2021, Leme won a league-best seven events and 16 rounds, while recording nine 90-point rides, en route to the gold buckle.

While he currently holds the world No. 2 rank, a slim 16 points behind No. 1 Kaique Pacheco (Itatiba, Brazil), Leme is mounting a potentially record-setting season en route to what would be his historic second consecutive PBR World Championship.

Having logged 10 round wins and 12 90-point rides to date in 2021, Leme is on pace to break the season-record in both statistical categories. In 2013, two-time PBR World Champion J.B. Mauney (Statesville, North Carolina) registered a league-best 19 round wins, while in 1999 Cody Hart (Gainesville, Texas) registered a PBR best 16 90-point rides.

Further, should Leme repeat as the league’s World Champion, he would join Silvano Alves (Pilar do Sul, Brazil) as the only riders to win the coveted gold buckle in back-to-back seasons. Alves who won his first two titles in 2011 and 2012.

Part of Leme’s monumental season thus far, which has been highlighted by three event victories, included his first Unleash The Beast win of the season in late February when the league returned to the iconic Cowtown Coliseum in Fort Worth.

His golden-finish included a rematch with Woopaa (Barker Bulls/Hookin’ W Ranch), the very bull he clinched the 2020 PBR World Championship aboard. Again teaming for a monstrous score, Leme covered the striking bull for 94.75 points in the championship round to clinch the event victory inside the legendary western sports venue.

Positioned in the second half of the 2021 season, the PBR Fort Worth Invitational is crucial in the championship race to the PBR World Finals in early November, awarding a gold buckle and million-dollar bonus to the world’s best bull rider.

With 14 Unleash The Beast events already complete, the race for the 2021 PBR World Championship is one of the most fiercely contested in league history. With No. 1 Pacheco and No. 2 Leme separated by a mere 16 world points, looking further down the standings, No. 3 Cooper Davis (Jasper, Texas) remains hot on their spurs, within 164.5 points of No. 2 Leme and 180.5 points of No. 1 Pacheco.

This season’s current top three riders – 2018 PBR World Champion Pacheco, 2020 World Champion Leme and 2016 World Champion Davis – are all attempting to become just the seventh rider in league history to have won the coveted gold buckle in multiple seasons.

In addition to Pacheco and Leme, who call Decatur home, and Jasper-native Davis, the draw for the Fort Worth event is also anticipated to be led by Texas’ own Cody Teel (College Station, Texas), Chase Dougherty (Stephenville, Texas), Boudreaux Campbell (Crockett, Texas), Taylor Toves (Stephenville, Texas), Jesse Petri (Palestine, Texas), Ezekiel Mitchell (Rockdale, Texas) and Mason Taylor (Maypearl, Texas).

PBR Elite Seats are available for avid fans who want an exclusive VIP experience while enjoying the world’s top bull riding circuit. These tickets offer premium seats, a question and answer presentation with some of the top bull riders and stock contractors in the world, behind-the-scenes look at the event from the back of the bucking chutes, and souvenir credential and lanyard.

For an enhanced PBR experience, fans can now purchase add-on PBR Premium Experiences which will include the Elite Experience on both Saturday, August 28 and Sunday, August 29, and Bull Housing Tour on Saturday, August 28 in Fort Worth.

The Elite Experience, available for $75, will include a Q&A session with a select group of the league’s top riders, bullfighters and stock contractors, exclusive merchandise item, arena concession voucher and commemorative lanyard.

The Bull Housing Tour, available for $60, will get experience-purchasers up-close-and-personal with the league’s top animal athletes, and include a commemorative lanyard and Bulls of the PBR book.

Taste Community Restaurant Launches New Locally Grown Summer Menu!

Taste Community Restaurant Launches New Locally Grown Summer Menu!

Fort Worth’s nonprofit restaurant, Taste Community Restaurant, launches its new summer menu with a focus on locally grown produce.

While seasonal menus are not a new concept in Fort Worth, Taste Community Restaurant is located in the city’s largest food desert where access to affordable good-quality fresh food is limited.

“We continue to explore ways to serve our community,” says Jeff Williams, Founder and Executive Director of Taste Project. “Growing food in our community is a perfect opportunity to continue connecting people around food.”

As part of its new Urban Farm Project, Taste Project has been granted 1/3 acre at Opal’s Farms, also located within Fort Worth’s largest food desert. Taste Project is growing cucumbers, squash, purple-hull peas, and melons for its summer menu.

Taste Community Restaurant is the first project of the Taste Project organization designed to help feed, educate, and serve Tarrant County’s food insecure population, a total of 13.9 percent of Tarrant County’s overall community (Feeding America).

Taste’s solution is a fresh and healthy pay-what-you-can restaurant where everyone in the community, regardless of financial means, can enjoy a healthy, high quality meal. The menu has no prices. Guests are simply asked to:
Pay what you can afford;
Pay what you would typically pay; or
Pay what you would typically pay, plus a little extra to help a neighbor in need.

“The food is always great and nutritious (the only good & healthy meal I eat is here)…”, Taste Community Restaurant Guest.

Jeff Williams encourages all Fort Worth and surrounding area residents to come become a part of the solution to food insecurity in our community by dining with us, or joining us to volunteer.
