Fort Worth Community Arts Center and Art Tooth are proud to present the third annual Art Aid Expo.

Started in 2017, Art Aid Expo is a yearly program of the Arts Center developed for creatives interested in ways to benefit their practice.

For one day only, we transform our gallery space to showcase the numerous local area services that can help artists progress their careers.

In 2018 and 2019, we teamed up with Art Tooth as part of our collective in residence program to create a more involved outreach for our community of artists.

Demonstrations and seminars in 9,000 square feet of contemporary galleries will be geared towards artists, art non-profits and other creative professionals highlighting the diverse support services available. Featured organizations and professionals will present their expertise through a variety of workshops and seminars helping artists to learn how to sustain a living in the arts.
