Student work to honor unique arts community
Ft. Worth, Tex. – As Fort Worth gears up for the 10th anniversary of Fort Worth Public Art (FWPA), students at The Art Institute of Fort Worth, a campus of South University, are celebrating the one-year anniversary of their college by honoring the city’s unique thriving arts community. The college is holding an exhibition titled “Public Art Revisited” as part of the community’s Spring Gallery Night on March 26.
Students from the college were tasked with creating 2D drawings, paintings or photography using artwork installed by FWPA as inspiration for their pieces. “We are so proud to be a part of the Fort Worth art community,” said The Art Institute of Fort Worth Campus Director Chad Williams. “We want our students to take advantage of this city’s wealth of artwork, so we’ve asked them to use that artwork to inspire their creativity.”
Student art will be judged by FWPA Council Vice President Martha Peters, Fort Worth Community Arts Center Gallery Manager Elaine Taylor and Amon Carter Museum of American Art Curator of Paintings and Sculpture Rebecca Lawton. The winning student’s work will be reproduced on the cover of the Fort Worth Art Show catalogue and also utilized in future FWPA publications.
“Public Art Revisited” is open to the community as part of Spring Gallery Night, Saturday, March 26 from 2 p.m. – 9 p.m. For more information about the students’ work and The Art Institute of Fort Worth, please contact Natalia Derevyanny at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312.777.8640.
