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.
