Description

Tour Guide: Martha Peters, Fort Worth Public Art

This tour will introduce the attendees to the Fort Worth Public Art Program (FWPA), established by the City of Fort Worth. Led by Martha Peters, Public Art Vice-President of the Arts Council, the tour will visit several public art installations, with an extensive discussion of the program structure.

Established in 2002, FWPA is a City of Fort Worth program administered by the Arts Council of Fort Worth & Tarrant County that engages local, regional and national artists for city projects large and small. The goal of the FWPA is to enhance the visual environment of Fort Worth, to commemorate the city’s rich cultural and ethnic diversity, and to promote tourism and economic vitality in the city through public art. Each year the FWPA receives a 2% allocation from Water and Wastewater Operating Funds for the cash financing of these capital projects. Great cities have great public art, and public art enriches the quality of our daily lives, creating a sense of place and an awareness of the power of art.
