Amon Carter Museum of American Art Opens Renovated Museum Store

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art announce its Museum Store has undergone a major renovation. Now featuring a café with locally roasted Aduro Bean & Leaf coffee, an assortment of hot teas, a selection of bottled beverages and baked goods from Artisan Baking Co., it also offers an expanded children’s section, handmade jewelry, art-inspired ties and scarves, and home décor items.

“We’re very excited to offer a service that enhances the visitor experience,” says Kevin Aldridge, retail manager. “The space is not only remodeled, it’s re-imagined.”

After undergoing an extensive renovation, the store, designed with teak-wood accents and cork flooring, has installed a café area. Artisan Baking Co.’s owner Gwin Grogan Grimes’ shortbread and chocolate chip cookies, biscotti and chickpea crackers, among other foods sold in the café, have cultivated a regional following, and the Amon Carter is proud to showcase her tasty talents.

In addition, the store has expanded upon its interest in selling eco-friendly items. The children’s area highlights this mission, featuring art supplies crafted from natural ingredients by Clementine Art and building sets by MudPuppy.

Other new merchandise includes:

Scarves designed from the photography of Robert Glenn Ketchum
Ties inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and Eadweard Muybridge
Artisan gift items such as wine corks designed by Spencer Peterman
In conjunction with its grand reopening, the store will offer discounts on its merchandise from September 9-11. Most merchandise will be 10 percent off, and Amon Carter publications will be 15 percent off; members will receive a 20 percent discount. (Food and drink are not included in the discount.)
