Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the Arts Center is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States, the Fort Worth Cultural District. 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 Art Museum of Fort Worth. In 2002, the Modern moved locations, and the building was renamed the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, becoming a home for the arts in Fort Worth.
The Arts Center is managed by the Arts Council of Fort Worth, which provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through a competitive grants program, as well as administering the Fort Worth Public Art program.
