The FWCAC is part of one of the most architecturally-significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century.
The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive grants program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.The mission of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center is to provide a fine event, visual and performing arts venue for all of the community.
