The Arts Council of Fort Worth and Tarrant County through the Fort Worth Public Art program recently called for applications for its Community ID: Art in Neighborhoods project.
Through the Community ID Project, the city and the Arts Council create public displays of art in neighborhoods all across Fort Worth. You can see examples of past projects on their website at http://www.fwpublicart.org.
FWPA received hundreds of applications from all over district 2 and 9.
Applicants’ community support and their chosen space were key factors in the award.
We are happy to announce that the Fairmount Neighborhood Association received one of two grants awarded this year. The second grant went to the North Beverly Hills neighborhood in North Fort Worth.
Fairmount will receive $50,000 for use in the design and installation of a public display of art in Fairmount Park. We will work with the city, FWPA and a Texas artist selected from the Fort Worth Public Art Registry to create a display of art that will become one of the signature features of our neighborhood.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to write letters of support to the FWPA. Your emphatic show of community support helped Fairmount edge out organizations all over the Southside.
Please be sure to check out FWPA’s exhibition at 1208 W. Magnolia for examples of past projects.
