Last night, I went back to the Modern to take a few new photographs of the building and the lights in the trees.  They will be posted in order of when they were taken.  However, they were not processed in order, so the names are not consecutively numbered.  I won't make any comments, I will let you all make them.  The museum is free on Fridays and they are open until 8 PM.

Ive really appreciated the trees. They have become a part of my holiday tradition to go and visit them. Beautifully captured.

Thank you, Austin.  I actually took many more that I haven't posted.  The building and their holiday lighting are Fort Worth treasures.

You are welcome, 360texas.  There were quite a few people inside the museum last night, as well.  The restaurant was also doing a good amount of business for the dinner crowd.  The Kimbell was also open until 8 PM last night.

Is that blue glow part of an art piece or is it a holiday decoration? Or both?

The blue light comes from scrolling LED signs kind of like what you would see at a stock exchange, which is part of an installation.
