FWPA | Working with Artists and Communities to Create Distinct and Memorable Places

 Artworks commissioned by the City of Fort Worth through Fort Worth Public Art are the tangible results of a process that stimulates dialogue,  collaboration, and sometimes, multiple iterations of the artist’s idea. Ultimately, the works represent a moment in time in Fort Worth’s rich history and, collectively, reference the past, present, and future of the city.    – Martha Peters, Director of Public Art, Arts Fort Worth
