DESCRIPTION

FORT WORTH COMMUNITY ARTS CENTER IS PROUD TO PRESENT: 35mm Slide Show

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION - November 1, 2017 

EXHIBITION DATES: December 1 – December 29, 2017 RECEPTION: Friday, December 1, 2017

CALL TO ARTISTS: Do you have a box of old 35mm slides that you do not know what to do with? Are you still making slide because you believe they are making a comeback? If so, this call is for you. During the month of December we will host our very first "35mm Slide Show". This is an international call to artists over the age of 18, open to all disciplines with no theme. The only stipulation is all works must be presented on 35mm slide to be displayed on a rotating projector during the month of December. All artwork submitted must not infringe upon any copyright or the rights of any person. 

ABOUT US: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC 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 FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.
