They are among the best of bests

     Who we are, what we stand for, how we got there, and mostly why we do it are some of the overall criteria when we are under evaluation’s thumb, and it doesn’t matter if you are a people or a place: The scales of standards must balance. Notably, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is one of 39 museums accredited in Texas, and they have again achieved accreditation by the American Association of Museums.

     The Accreditation Commission lauded the Modern for the “sophisticated manner in which exhibitions and accompanying interpretive programs incorporate diversity by (showing) a commitment to respond to the needs of the community.” In addition, the Commission also referenced the Modern’s “environmental stewardship plan is a model that is both ecologically and economically responsible.”

     All museums must undergo a reaccreditation review at least every 10 years to maintain accredited status and of the estimated 17,500 museums, 775 are currently accredited. An AAM recognition is the highest given that signifies excellence.
