Fort Worth’s Public Art Program seeks emerging and established public artists working in a variety of visual media and artistic approaches, providing regional artists with the opportunity to showcase their past work in public spaces, including murals, digital, cultural and studio media for the 2022 Prequalified Artist List.

Applications are free and open until February 11, 2022.

The purpose of the Prequalified Artist List is to provide a streamlined application and selection process for artists interested in being commissioned for public art projects across Fort Worth. Possible art opportunities include parks, libraries, fire stations, community centers and more.

Artists will be selected based on artistic merit of their previous work and their willingness to work collaboratively with other professionals and accept community feedback.

A selection committee will meet to review all eligible applications. The panel will then recommend artists for approval to the Fort Worth Public Art Commission. Once approved, artists will remain eligible for projects associated with the upcoming 2022 bond election.
