ABOUT THE JUROR: Art Room
We are a creative created by artists for artists.
Art Room is a creative, curatorial team that seeks contemporary art to engage the Dallas / Fort Worth community through exhibitions, which showcase a diverse culture of local, regional, and national emerging and mid-career artists in a variety of media.
Art Room collaborates with reputable art dealers, businesses, and non-profit organizations to provide accessible spaces to showcase fine art. Acting as an engaging social hub through opening events that contain art, live music, and refreshments, Art Room enables community interaction with artwork and the artists, while adding to the contemporary art culture that is continually growing in DFW.
ABOUT US: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part 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 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.
