The Arts Council of Fort Worth is thrilled to announce a Cultural District grant award of $225,000 from the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) for a free community event that premieres art works by internationally recognized new media artists Quayola and Refik Anadol.
Fort Worth Public Art is seeking a design professional to serve the Fort Worth Art Commission. The Art Commission advises and makes recommendations to Fort Worth City Council regarding the Fort Worth Public Art program including project planning, artist selection, design review, and collection management.
Artist Dan Corson’s concept is based on airplanes, the migration patterns of birds, and the Fort Worth icon, the Texas Longhorn. A series of twelve footlong abstract forms resembling longhorns will be fabricated in frosted white, UV-stable, impact resistant acrylic and will be suspended from the concrete beams of the I-30 Bridge.
The Animalis Works team, artists Dharmesh Patel and Autumn Ewalt, was inspired by the revitalization and conservation of Northwest Community Park as an ecosystem. Particularly interested in its reemergence as a stopping point on the migration route of the monarch butterflies, the team designed a series of larger-than-life butterfly sculptures. Each beautiful butterfly sculpture calls to mind this migration, encapsulating the energy and vibrance of nature
During the month of October, Fort Worth residents are invited to participate in the creation of this exciting audio/video artwork through Refik Anadol’s Call for Memories. The artist has created a website to accept images and/or stories associated with any location in the city.
Quayola (b.1982) employs technology as a lens to explore the tensions and equilibriums between seemingly opposing forces: real and artificial, figurative and abstract, old and new. His varied practice, all deriving from custom computer software, includes audio/visual performance, video, sculpture, and works on paper.
