Public art enriches the quality of our daily visual experience, creating a sense of place and making our city more attractive to visitors and residents alike. It’s an investment in the urban environment, promoting civic pride by reflecting who we are. With the establishment of Fort Worth Public Art (FWPA) in 2001, the City of Fort Worth said “YES!” to enhancing civic architecture, creating harmonious public spaces, and fostering artfully designed infrastructure.
