SELECTION PROCESS: Artworks are selected through a curatorial process by an anonymous local arts profession who wishes to remain silent. Space and time is limited so please do not wait to submit.

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: Work will be juried from images submitted only through the gallery’s online submission. A $5.00 submission fee for up to ten (10) pieces. Images must be JPEGs with minimum width/height of 800 pixels, maximum size as 3MB. The title of the image file should be the same as the title of the artwork. Video and audio files can be submitted through links but artist must supply their own equipment. FWCAC reserves the right to reject inaccurately represented work, or incomplete submission.
