About the Forth Worth Community Art Center
Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum district 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. In 2002, the Modern moved down the street and 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, and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.
