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 (FWPA) has two categories within the 2018 pre-qualified list of artists based on artists’ residency and experience in public art. Each list has a separate application process and will be reviewed by the panel independently. The pre-qualified public artist list includes eligible local, regional and national artists. With the recently approved 2018 bond program, there is the opportunity for many new public art projects at locations such as parks, libraries, community centers and streets.

Application submissions for the 2018 pre-qualified public artist lists will be available to artists through CAFÉ. All interested artists should submit an artist statement, letter of interest, resume, three references and 10 images of completed past artwork, public or otherwise.

Artists who have previously been on the FWPA Pre-Qualified List are required to reapply through CAFÉ.

The deadline has been extended to May 29 at 11:59 p.m. Learn more.
