Public Art Master Plan Update


The City of Fort Worth is embarking on an update of the original Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan, adopted by City Council in 2003, which set forth a vision for public art in Fort Worth, as well as recommendations of future projects and guidelines for artist selection and design review.  The 2014 Fort Worth Cultural Plan Update recommended a public art master plan update, “to confirm that program initiatives reflect community priorities”. 

On June 14, 2016, Fort Worth City Council authorized an agreement with the consultant team of Barbara Goldstein & Associates with Cusick Consulting for the Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan Update project.  

Residents of Fort Worth have participated in focus groups, public meetings, an online survey, and through an interactive, temporaray public art project by local artists ACTunited.
