Events in Fort Worth, Denton


Fort Worth:


Kimbell Art Museum Through Jan. 25 Faces of Impressionism: Portraits from the Musée d'Orsay explores the character and development of the portrait in French painting and sculpture from the late 1850s until the first years of the 20th century. The major figures of Impressionist portraiture - Caillebotte, Cézanne, Degas, Monet and Renoir - will be represented in depth.

The Kimbell is located at 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd. in Fort Worth. Information: www.kimbell.org.

The Herd Twice Daily, 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Texas Longhorn and the American cowboy are two of the most enduring symbols of the Old West. They're a big reason why Fort Worth earned the nickname "Cowtown." And they formed the core of the great cattle drives of the late nineteenth century. Now, the romance and mystique of cowboys and cattle drives returns to Fort Worth with The Herd - Texas Longhorns driven by genuine Texas cowhands - offering an unforgettable glimpse into the past. You'll hear the jingle of spurs, the cattle bawling, and the rhythm of the hoof beats. As The Herd passes, a bygone era comes to life before your eyes. The world's only twice-daily cattle drive happens at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily in the Stockyards National Historic District, 130 E. Exchange Ave. in Fort Worth. Look for the Drovers before and after each cattle drive for photo opportunities and to learn more about life on the trail! Note: drives are not held on Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day. Information: www.fortworth.com.

Denton:


Denton Community Market Saturdays through Nov. 29 Denton Community Market takes place Saturdays through November near downtown Denton. Experience a community gathering space alive with music, local food and produce, locally produced handmade arts and crafts, on-site food, local business, community groups and more! The market is held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is located at Carroll Blvd. and Mulberry St. Information: dentonmarket.org.

Nov. 8 North Texas vs. Florida Atlantic football. The Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA), North Texas Athletics department (UNT) and the Denton Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) have teamed up to provide complimentary transportation services via DCTA special event shuttle services for North Texas home games during the 2014-2015 football season. It's simple to ride the new Mean Green Game Day shuttle. Passengers hop on the A-train, arrive at the Euline Brock Downtown Denton Transit Center (DDTC) and board the free Mean Green Game Day Shuttle from the DDTC, to the Mean Green Tailgating Village and pedestrian bridge that leads to Apogee Stadium. The buses will also stop at locations along the Downtown Denton Square so passengers can take a break for dining, drinks and shopping before or after the football games. Information: www.meangreengameday.net.

First Friday Denton First Friday of every month First Friday Denton is on the first Friday of every month, and is significant because that is the day when artists and artisans in the business district surrounding the Denton County Historic Courthouse on the Square open their doors for visitors and patrons to visit and see them at work, browse and perhaps buy a unique piece of art, jewelry or a myriad of other art objects - for yourself or someone special. And First Friday also offers patrons a chance to visit their favorite restaurants and businesses that have extended First Friday hours, so come to First Friday ready for music, art, books, coffee and great original foods. Information: www.firstfridaydenton.com.

Fridays and Saturdays Ghosts of Denton haunted history tours. The city of Denton, and the county surrounding it, has fascinating history. It also has more than its fair share of ghostly stories. Join Shelly Tucker, a professional storyteller for 27 years, on a 90 minute tour. Most of the tour revolves around the square, although there is one (and possibly now there are two) stops about two blocks away. Tour participants should wear comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. In summer, it's a good idea to bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated. Scheduled tours begin at 8:00 p.m (sharp) on Friday and Saturday nights from Jupiter House Coffee at 106 N. Locust in Denton (on the east side of the Courthouse-on-the-Square). Advance tickets are available online or at Jupiter House Coffee. Information: www.ghostsofdenton.com.

UNT Art Path Discover the UNT Art Path, a self-guided walking tour of art works on the University of North Texas campus. You can pick up UNT Art Path brochures in the University Union Information Center, the Office of the Dean in the Art Building, UNT on the Square and the Alumni Center at Gateway Center. Docent-led tours are available by appointment. For information, contact Tracee W. Robertson, UNT Art Gallery Director, or Eva James Toia, development director for the College of Visual Arts and Design, at 940-565-4001 or cvad@unt.edu or visit northtexan.unt.edu/content/unt-art-path.
