FWCAC R.F.P. 2018

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION - September 15, 2017 

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center is now accepting proposals for 2018 exhibits!

In an effort to coordinate our 2018 calendar, we are making some exciting changes to the way we schedule upcoming shows. Our calendar will be arranged so that each month the exhibits are more cohesive and supportive of each.

We will no longer rent our spaces on a first come – first serve basis. Instead your proposal will be reviewed and selected to fit the space and timing that works best for the entire gallery.

We are requesting well thought out proposals for exhibit in 2018 by September 15, 2017. Please list the gallery and date you prefer, we will attempt to accommodate your request. Please note, March and September 2018 are already booked. We are also revamping our Focus Gallery program to ensure that the artists selected are exhibiting in the gallery that fits their work the best. This being said, Galleries one and two may be available for your show. 

Your show idea or concept may not be fully realized, but please do your best to summarize what it will be. Include images of each artist’s work who will be participating.  The more formulated the show idea, the better chance of selection.

Remember, space is limited, so put thought into your proposal idea. 

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.

SUBMISSION: Proposals will be viewed from images submitted only through the gallery’s online submission. We understand works may not be completed that you wish to exhibit so we ask for a general idea. Please submit images of the artists participating even if those works will not be in the show. If your exhibit includes several artists, please submit works that sum up their style. Images must be JPEGs with minimum width/height of 800 pixels, maximum size as 2MB.
