The FWCAC agrees to devote its best efforts to the sale of the Artwork.  All sales prices and terms of sale shall be determined by mutual consent of the parties prior to the date the contract becomes effective. 

As of May 1, 2014 the FWCAC will be adding a temporary satellite gallery in the South 7th Shopping Area.  This space may move locations throughout the shopping area.  Items on consignment to the FWCAC may be displayed at either location at the discretion of the FWCAC.

ABOUT US: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century. The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.
