The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents FOCUS: Barry McGee
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
3200 Darnell Street
Fort Worth, TX

Ticket Price: $10 adults $4 students/seniors
McGee rose to prominence in the early 1990s as part of the graffiti boom in San Francisco. Although he is primarily associated with street culture and the self-taught artists of the Mission School art movement, McGee was formally trained when he studied painting and printmaking at the San Francisco Art Institute. Drawing on such diverse influences as the Mexican Muralists, tramp art, surfer culture, graffiti from the 1970s and 1980s, and the beat poets, McGee's now widely recognizable imagery is as perceptive and poetic as it is graphic and dynamic. Often focusing on social dropouts and those who are marginalized, one of his most popular motifs is a sad-sack man depicted with a furrowed brow or grimace.
