TEMPORARY ART | The Sheila and Houston Hill Courtyard Gallery

Local artist Kris Pierce installed a series of three permanent sculptural plinths in the courtyard of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center in November 2019, providing a new temporary outdoor sculpture exhibitions organized by the Arts Council of Fort Worth:

An extension of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center galleries, the Sheila & Houston Hill Courtyard Gallery provides a venue to temporarily exhibit contemporary sculptural artwork in a prominent outdoor setting in one of the most architecturally significant Cultural Districts in the United States. 

This program builds on the legacy of outdoor sculpture exhibitions at museums in the Cultural District while exploring relevant themes and issues while acting as a catalyst for conversations about art and community issues. The Fort Worth Community Arts Center’s Exhibitions Manager invited a select group of young artists to submit proposals for the inaugural Sheila & Houston Hill Courtyard Gallery. Two artists were selected to exhibit for one year. Each artist was chosen based on artistic merit, conceptual strength, and each artist’s ability to address relevant social and cultural issues.
