Overview

Fort Worth, Texas is one of the most cultured and cosmopolitan cities in the world. Photographer Peter A. Calvin captures Fort Worth's revitalization in his photos of both new and handsomely restored buildings and parks. Renaissance Revival architecture stands beside modern masterpieces, as well as structures with strong Native American influences. The Kimball Art Museum and Bass Performance Hall's Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, among others, reflect a renowned level of artistic sophistication. Cattle ranches, rodeo, and Native American traditions are revered through public statuary, museums, and festivals. The city's legacy of daring men who tamed the wild, lives on in places like the Texas Motor Speedway, La Grave Field, and the Cowtown Coliseum's Stockyard Championships. Calvin captures the many moods of this vibrant city "where the West begins."
