    Queen Nefertari’s Egypt celebrates the wives of pharaohs during the New Kingdom period (1550–1070 BC), when Egyptian civilization was at its height.

    These women—not just great royal wives, but also sisters, daughters, and mothers of pharaohs, and sometimes even pharaohs themselves—are brought to life through some 230 exceptional objects, including statues, jewelry, vases, papyrus, steles, mummies, wooden coffins, and stone sarcophagi, as well as tools and various items of daily life from the artisan village of Deir-el-Medina, home to the craftsmen who made the royal tombs. These astonishing treasures showcase the legacy of these amazing women—whose status often verged on divine. All of the selected masterpieces come from the Museo Egizio in Turin, the second-most-important permanent Egyptian collection in the world after Cairo and one of the most prestigious museums in Italy.

    Nefertari, whose name means “the most beautiful of them all,” was the beloved royal wife of Pharaoh Ramesses II. Linked to some of the most magnificent monuments of ancient Egypt, she not only appears in statues, images, and inscriptions on the buildings of Ramesses II, but a complete temple was consecrated to her in Abu Simbel, beside the one dedicated to her husband. Her tomb is the largest and most richly decorated in the Valley of the Queens. It was discovered in the early twentieth century by a team of Italian archaeologists led by Ernesto Schiaparelli, then director of the Museo Egizio, and the team’s journey of discovery on the banks of the ancient Nile is also chronicled through the stunning artifacts on view.

    Winslow Homer (1836–1910), Snap the Whip, 1872, oil on canvas, Collection of The Butler Museum of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio Museum Purchase, 1919 Bridgeman ImagesAmerican icon Winslow Homer, famous ocean painter, joins Frederic Remington, legendary cowboy artist, for Mythmakers: The Art of Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington, the first exhibition to explore the unexpected resonances and moments of convergence between the themes, artistic sensibilities, and technical processes of these two artists.

    Homer and Remington were touted by turn-of-the-century critics as artists whose work reinforced an American identity rooted in action, independence, and communion with the outdoors. While both artists actively cultivated this reputation, the correlation between these two icons has never been considered in depth due to the perceived differences in their subject matter.

    The show will premiere in Denver in March 2020 and conclude its tour at the Carter.

From Standing Rock protests to the Arizona and Texas borderlands, Epstein travels the country capturing images where public and private rights are often in conflict. Politics and citizenship, or environmental degradation and land rights, Epstein focuses on tough topics, helping us see overlapping, and often competing, histories and perspectives.

    Interested parties may provide feedback on redistricting criteria and procedures during an upcoming series of virtual public meetings. 

    In 2016, Fort Worth voters approved an amendment to the City Charter to increase the number of City Council members from nine to 11 following the completion of the 2020 Census. The Task Force on Race and Culture in December 2018 recommended the goal of ensuring that the City Council reflects the diverse communities that it represents. The City Council appointed an 11-member Redistricting Task Force.

    The meetings will provide an opportunity to find out more about the redistricting task force and redistricting guidelines. The meeting on Jan. 19 will be conducted in Spanish

    Any member of the public who wishes to address the task force during these public hearings may sign up to speak no later than 5 p.m. on the day of the meeting. To sign up, email Fort Worth Connection or call 817-392-6248.

    About the Redistricting Task Force

    In August 2020, the City Council charged the task force with: “Evaluating the criteria and procedures by which the City Council has redrawn Council district boundaries in the past and, accordingly, advising the City Council about redistricting criteria and procedures that the City Council should use in the future.”

    In December, the task force presented an interim report on findings to the City Council. Ten key criteria were listed. The task force also suggested that software training be provided to residents who are interested in the redistricting process, and that proposed redistricting plans submitted by residents be analyzed and presented to the City Council.

    The group is urging transparency in the redistricting process by potentially requiring all map drawing to occur at public meetings, with computer screens visible to all parties.

    Upcoming activities for the Redistricting Task Force:

    Feb. 4, 2021, 3 p.m. The task force will discuss comments from the public meetings and reach agreement on final recommendations.

    March 2, 2021, 3 p.m. The task force will present its final report to the City Council.

    March 16, 2021, 7 p.m. The City Council will adopt a resolution accepting the final report.

    All meetings of the Redistricting Task Force are open to the public.

    The Cowtown Marathon has made the decision to move our 2021 race dates as well as adjust all race weekend activities. This change is in response to ongoing coronavirus-pandemic concerns and our commitment to the safety of all athletes, volunteers, spectators and staff. We are acting now, so runners may effectively train for their distances, and we can accommodate safety recommendations for social distancing.

    The Cowtown will now take place on May 8th, 2021, shifting from the last weekend in February (26th – 28th, 2021). May 8th will include an in-person 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, and the Healthy Hig Half Marathon Relay. We have cancelled the in-person Kids 5K, Full, and Ultra Marathons, but virtual options to run are available.
