Ar ts Council of For t Wor th

A LETTER FRO M OU R PRESI D ENT Dear Friend, I’m delighted to personally share with you our 2013 Annual Report. We’ve depended on you, our valued supporter, since the Arts Council first opened its doors in 1963. With your help, we have granted more than $40 million to arts organizations of all sizes. I’m proud of what we’ve been able to do, and we couldn’t have done it without you. As you read through the highlights of 2013, please take a moment to celebrate the magical moments that you made possible: Thanks to you, a child at a low-income school found her creative voice through after-school poetry classes. Thanks to you, classrooms of children experienced live performance at Bass Performance Hall – free of charge. Thanks to you, an isolated senior citizen was treated to a musical theatre performance featuring songs of his youth. There is no way to fully express what your generosity means to the many people we serve. Without the right words, I’m left with the two that come closest: Thank you. With sincere gratitude,

For t Wor th Community Ar ts Center

As part of its charge to address the needs of the arts community and the community at large, the Arts Council manages the Fort Worth Community Arts Center under contract with the City of Fort Worth. The Community Arts Center provides a high-quality venue for both children and adults to immerse themselves in creativity. In 2013, more than 65,000 people passed through its doors, drawn by the Center ’s unique setting for exhibits, meetings, events and performance arts shows. In March, the Community Arts Center celebrated its 10th anniversary in conjunction with Spring Gallery Night, presented by the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association.

A day of performances from local arts organizations culminated in an after-party on the veranda with music by Luke Wade. Despite the rain, nearly 2,500 people experienced Fort Worth’s cultural richness complete with food trucks, live music, and of course, stunning art.


For t Wor th Community Ar ts Center

The Arts Center publicly debuted ARTshop at Fall Gallery Night in September. ARTshop is a boutique featuring original art works from 36 Texas artists. ARTshop carries a variety of one-of-a-kind treasures—from handmade cards to driftwood sculptures and tapestry weavings. This hidden gem has enjoyed tremendous success, thanks in part to 360 West Magazine, for spotlighting ARTshop for its diverse selection of unique gift ideas.

“The reception venue was beautiful—the art on the walls was fun and appealing to all ages, and the staff was very helpful. I have wonderful memories from the evening!” - Visitor of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center

heART of Gold

In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, the Arts Council introduced the heART of Gold Awards Luncheon to recognize one man and woman for their outstanding contributions to the arts in Fort Worth. Arts patrons and organizations gathered at the Fort Worth Club to honor the inaugural heART of Gold awardees, Mrs. Louise Britt Carvey and Mr. Val Wilkie, Jr. The lunch also featured a surprise coronation for Fort Worth Opera General Director, Darren K. Woods, recipient of the “Innovator in the Arts� award. This delightful after noon of gratitude honored those worthy individuals who have so graciously shared their time, treasures and passion in the name of the arts.

Toast of the Town

Despite the threat of “Icepocalypse 2013,” the bravest and boldest of Fort Worth’s business and social sphere made their way out to the Worthington Renaissance Hotel to celebrate 50 years of the arts in Fort Worth, and pitch in their support for an even grander 50 to come. It may have been below freezing outside, but the dance floor was hot, as party-goers brought out their slickest moves to the sounds of FACE and Chinatown. Guests also spent a little time showing off their own artistic talents on our first-ever collaborative art piece. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and attendees, the 33rd Annual Toast of the Town was a success in the face of nature’s fury, raising over $44,000 and the hope for many art-full years to come. 19

For t Wor th Ar ts Funding

After four years of reduced municipal funding, the Arts Council of Fort Worth initiated an Advocacy Campaign outlining the impact increased funding for the arts has on jobs, tourism and the local economy. The prior decrease in funding had hurt programming throughout the city and threatened the financial health of many local arts groups. Key to the Advocacy Campaign was the Economic Impact Study commissioned by Americans for the Arts, which showed that Fort Worth’s arts industry was in fact a vital part of the local economy. The report showed that arts organizations and their patrons generated over $84

24

million in annual economic activity, and supported 3,011 full-time equivalent jobs. After working with Mayor Betsy Price's appointed Arts Funding Task Force, the City Manager concluded last year that increasing funds for 2014 would be in Fort Worth's best interest. This increase—going from $600,310 to $1.4 million—has been the first in five years. The increase in funding will directly impact arts organizations through funds for general operating support and increased money for projects. Fort Worth was recently recognized as a national model for proving the arts to be


For t Wor th Ar ts Funding

an important revenue-generating industry, and Jody Ulich, President of the Arts Council, was invited to share this story at Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. during a congressional staff briefing last fall. Critically, the Task force also concluded that even with this new increase, Fort Worth still lags far behind the average arts funding amount it should receive when compared to other Texas cities with populations of over 500,000. The goal recommended by the Task Force is $2.3 million.

The Arts Council is very grateful to the City of Fort Worth for recognizing the arts as a vital industry to the local economy, and for providing the increased funding. With the recent celebration of the organization's 50th anniversary, the Arts Council thanks all of its hardworking and loyal supporters who helped make the arts a thriving industry. The Arts Council's mission is not over, as the Board kindly urges the public to continue to stay involved and give back so the arts in Fort Worth can create an even greater impact over the next 50 years.
