Arts at a distance FB Group cover.jpg

Although the doors of the Fort Worth Community Arts Center are closed while the public continues to shelter-in-place, the Arts Center continues to support the artists and creatives as well as bring the arts to the community. As part of the “Arts at a Distance” program, all creative people are invited to upload a 2-minute video of original and creative content to the “Arts at a Distance” Facebook Group. Entries in the group will be in the running to receive a solo exhibition, a two-person exhibition, or a performance in one of the Arts Center’s theater spaces. Visual artists, performers, songwriters, musicians, filmmakers, poets, and playwrights are all welcome! This opportunity is open to everyone, everywhere!  

Call for Entry: Arts at a Distance 


The Fort Worth Community Arts Center invites all visual and performing artists to submit a 2-minute video highlighting their practice and/or artwork. There is no cost to participate. This is a rolling deadline, with no end date. 


Visual Arts: Artists are asked to submit a creative two-minute video highlighting their original artwork and/or practice through a  video presentation. This can include a virtual studio tour, a voiceover description of their work, or a performance related to the artwork- the more creative the better. 

Performance Arts: Songwriters, musicians, filmmakers, spoken word performers, poets, playwrights, and writers are asked to submit a creative two-minute video presentation highlighting their original work through an mp4 video format. 


Videos should be uploaded via the Facebook Group “Arts at a Distance” and will be juried by the public via “love” reactions on each post. The top submission that receives the most “love” reactions will receive one solo exhibition or a performance in one of our theater spaces and the second and third submissions will receive a two-person exhibition or recognition in a theater space at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center in 2021. There is no submission fee. Participants are highly encouraged to promote their submissions to friends. The Fort Worth Community Arts Center reserves the right to reject inaccurately represented work or incomplete submissions.  

Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts 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. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, 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 Fort Worth Community Arts Center, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.
