letter publisher MISAEL RODRIGUEZ W elcome to March and the spring issue of PaperCity Fort Worth! This time of year is certainly bittersweet, as it marks one year since COVID-19 changed our world and hearts forever. While I don't think anyone deems this a milestone worth celebrating, I think we can all agree that there's finally some much-needed light at the end of the tunnel. I can't help but give thanks to the real heroes who helped us get through the year — our healthcare providers and essential workers who man the front lines everyday. To those of you still working to keep us safe, thank you! As we look forward to what lies ahead, I'm ready for more normalcy in our day-to-day lives. I thrill at the idea of dusting off my most fabulous heels and clinking cocktails with new friends at the city's latest social events. For now, though, I'll continue to enjoy all of our favorite to-dos and the latest spring fashion in a socially distanced manner. On that note, I recently joined the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth via Zoom to welcome one of the its newest exhibitions, "FOCUS: Leidy Churchman." It was a wonderful and artful experience, and whether you pop in virtually or in person, I highly recommend you check out the exhibit, which is on view through March 21. You also shouldn't miss "Shirin Neshat: I Will Greet the Sun Again," which takes a pointed look at contemporary Iran and remains on view through May 16. Just next door, the Kimbell Art Museum celebrates girl power in the age of ancient Egypt with its "Queen Nefertari's Egypt" exhibition. The blockbuster celebrates the wives of pharaohs during the New Kingdom period when Eqyptian civilization was at its height; check it out before it leaves town on March 14. Finally, we are blowing up birthday balloons for the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, which toasts its milestone 60th anniversary this year. A staple of Fort Worth art, the Amon Carter has several notable exhibitions on view at the moment, including "Meditations: Eleanore Mikus at Tamarind" (through April 18), "In the Night Garden" (through December), and "James Surls: Seven and Seven Flower" (through Fall 2022). We hope this issue carries you through a happy and healthy spring and summer, filled with joy and inspiration, whether you're taking a spring-break staycation or road-tripping with the family to Aspen. Next time we see you, it will be to usher in a new normal this fall — starting with Texas Design Week, which returns to Dallas on September 20. We promise it will be worth making the drive east on I-30. In the meantime, keep up with us on social media and online at See you around Cowtown! Samantha Olguin Fort Worth Associate Publisher 18
