As recommended by the Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan Update, a new pre-qualified list of artists will be established for upcoming projects. Fort Worth Public Art has two separate categories within the 2018 Pre-Qualified List of Artists based upon artists’ residency and experience in Public Art. Each list has a separate application process and will be reviewed by the panel independently:

Texas and National Established Public Artist List:

  • Open to Texas-based and National artists/artist teams who work in any media
  • Artists must demonstrate experience with public art projects, materials suitable for public indoor and outdoor settings,
    site-specific design, collaboration with other artists, designers, architects, engineers, fabricators, city officials and staff
  • Artists should also demonstrate a willingness to accepting input from the community

Local North Texas-Based Emerging Public Artist List:

  • Open to North Texas artists* who reside in the Fort Worth metropolitan area, who work in any media
  • Previous public art or design team experience is not required.
  • Artists should demonstrate an understanding of appropriate materials and a willingness to work collaboratively with other artists, designers, architects, engineers, fabricators, city officials and staff.
  • Artists should also express a willingness to accepting input from the community.

(*This list is limited to artists who reside in the following Counties: Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Hood, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, and Wise)*

IMPORTANT: In accordance with the Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan Update, if selected for the North Texas-Based Emerging Public Artist list, applicants must have attended one of the Public Artists Training Workshops being presented in collaboration with the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, in order to be eligible for any future Fort Worth Public Art Projects.
