The Heart of Gold awards luncheon 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.  

In 2020, we took a different approach:

A safely distanced evening at Coyote Drive-In theater celebrating the resilient and innovative response of the Fort Worth art sector to this unique and challenging year.

Every dollar raised funds to support the Arts Council of Fort Worth

as we continue to meet the needs of our community

by granting dollars, like those provided by our Arts Nonprofit Relief Fund,

employing artists and designers through Public Art projects,

or bringing our community together to grow in the arts in person and online
