About Kimbell Art Museum
Despite its relatively small size, the Kimbell Art Museum is justly famous for both the quality of its holdings and its iconic architecture. The museum’s original building, commissioned in 1966 from revered modernist architect Louis I. Kahn and considered one of his masterpieces, houses the permanent collection, comprising some 350 works from the ancient world, Europe, the Americas, Asia, Oceania, and Africa, and spanning more than five thousand years. An additional structure, designed by contemporary architect Renzo Piano and opened in 2013, contains galleries for special exhibitions, as well as education studios, an auditorium, and a sizable research library.
