ABOUT ART AID EXPO: The Fort Worth Community Arts Center in collaboration with Art Tooth is proud to present the third annual Art Aid Expo 2019 for artists and arts organizations. Demonstrations and seminars in 9,000 square feet of contemporary galleries will be geared towards artists, art non-profits and other creative professionals highlighting the diverse support services available. Featured organizations and professionals will present their expertise through a variety of workshops and seminars helping artists to learn how to sustain a living in the arts.
ABOUT FWCAC: 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.
ABOUT ART TOOTH: Founded in 2016 by Fort Worth art collectives Bobby on Drums and Exhibitionists, Art Tooth is a new art consortium dedicated to educating and exhibiting regional contemporary art by emerging and mid-career artists, while building new relationships between artists and art patrons. By partnering with established local art dealers, organizations and businesses, Art Tooth continues its founders' "pop up" concept, making invigorating art accessible and solidifying the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area’s reputation as an art destination. Art Tooth serves as an arts partner, artist resource, and hybrid gallery project designed to elevate the creative practice of participating artists through exhibitions, networking events, educational workshops, and increased social media presence.
