Reese, Heather, and I headed down to Fort Worth to check out the samurai exhibit at the Kimbell Art Museum. We got there just in time to take a docent led tour of the exhibit, as opposed to just listening to the audio tour. It was a really interesting exhibit, with lots of suits of armor, helmets, and even clothing. There was a lot more variation in the details of the armor, such as the helmets and the decoration on the do, than I was expecting. And the condition of the textiles and other pieces was very impressive. The colors were a little faded by time, but they were still strong.
It didn’t take long to go through, and it’s there until the end of August, so please take the time to go. You won’t be disappointed.
