Heart of Gold celebrates the outstanding philanthropists, arts administrators, and creative leaders who make the performing and visual arts in Fort Worth a quintessential part of this city's identity. This year's event was held at Coyote Drive-In, where we debuted a mini-documentary highlighting the Fort Worth art sector's resilient and innovative response to this unique and challenging year. 

Join us on December 1st, when we premiere this documentary online!


The Arts Council of Fort Worth continues to stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and against systemic racism and police brutality. We are committed to listen, learn, and be a part of the transformation of our society through the power of art.


The Arts Council of Fort Worth cares deeply about our arts community and has compiled an on-going list of resources. Artists, musicians, writers, actors, and creatives who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic will find financial, mental health, and immediate response resources.
