Kimball Art Museum - 6 August 2007

Our last stop on this very long day (before we headed into Abilene to sleep) was the Kimball Art Museum in Fort Worth, TX. We went right past Dallas to Fort Worth, and although it was dark, it was nice to finally see this building in person. It was designed by Louis Kahn, a well-known architect who is possibly most famous for his Salk Institute in La Jolla, just north of San Diego. It's hard not to admire Kahn's buildings....they are at once simple and quiet but honest in their use of geometry and materials. You have to appreciate a designer who uses so much concrete so well.

We realized as we left the Kimball that we were absolutely starving....so we indulged in that very American activity, the drive-in restaurant, with our gigantic moving truck. I think the girls at Sonic got a big kick out of us.
