The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is now accepting submissions for works for the 2021-22 Season to be sold in the ARTshop on a consignment basis. Pieces accepted will remain in the ARTshop for 3-9 months with an option to extend the time based on sales. There are no limitations in what can be submitted but we favor smaller pieces since the space is small.
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.
