The Arts Council manages the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art Program.


At the Arts Council of Fort Worth, we believe that creativity transcends all barriers, real and perceived. We commit to challenging systemic and historic barriers by building a platform where all have an opportunity to express and see themselves in the arts.

How we all achieve these goals will be shaped by you: the challenges you face each day, the people and moments in life that bring you joy, your hopes for a better tomorrow. Share your stories, ideas, and suggestions for how the arts can build an equitable and unified Fort Worth by emailing


Your voice will guide our path for the future.

The Arts Council of Fort Worth is keeping a list of resources for artists, musicians, writers, actors, and creatives

who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Arts Council’s first priority is the health and safety of our visitors and staff.

The Arts Council is committed to reopening responsibly. Visitors can now set an appointment to visit the Fort Worth Community Arts Center's nine galleries and Art Shop. The Arts Council is asking visitors to help keep Fort Worth safe and healthy by adhering to the Centers for Disease Control’s guidelines. These include wearing a mask inside the Arts Center, maintaining social distancing, and frequent hand-washing.


Appointments can be set by calling the Arts Center Business Office at (817) 298-3024 or
