Art has a community.

The mission of the Arts Council of Fort Worth is to create an environment that promotes, nurtures and supports the arts in our community. The Council develops relationships between artists, organizations and the community at large through its stewardship of the Community Arts Center, administration of the Public Art Program, and development of various educational opportunities for the community. The Council also provides financial support to numerous, eligible non-profit arts organizations through the administration of a comprehensive grant program. Applications are reviewed by qualified volunteer panels and judged on management ability, artistic excellence and community outreach. The Arts Council is supported by the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, the Texas Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts and numerous individual, corporate and foundation donors. To all of whom we say,

“Thank you.”
