As recommended by the Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan Update, a new pre-qualified list of artists will be established for upcoming projects. Fort Worth Public Art has two separate categories within the 2018 Pre-Qualified List of Artists based upon artists’ residency and experience in Public Art.
To encourage local artists within the Fort Worth metropolitan area to participate, and to reflect the cultural richness of North Texas by highlighting opportunities for emerging public artists, FWPA has two separate categories within the 2018 Pre-Qualified List of Artists based upon artists’ residency. Each list has a separate application process and will be reviewed by the panel independently:
Local North Texas-Based Emerging Public Artist List:
IMPORTANT: In accordance with the Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan Update, if selected for the North Texas-Based Emerging Public Artist list, applicants must have attended one of the Public Artists Training Workshops being presented in collaboration with the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, in order to be eligible for any future Fort Worth Public Art Projects. The identical program will be offered in April 2018 in Dallas and October 2018 in Fort Worth. For more information on the Workshops please visit our website (www.fwpublicart.org).
