A message from the Arts Council of Fort Worth, Fort Worth Community Arts Center and Fort Worth Public Art
New Stories: New Futures at Pioneer Tower is a uniquely Fort Worth art event featuring historic and modern perspectives, stories, and memories from the community. Artworks projected onto Pioneer Tower were created by internationally renowned artists Refik Anadol and Quayola, and explore memories of Fort Worth and the region’s natural beauty.   The Arts Council of Fort Worth and AURORA present a public exhibition, curated by Dr. Lauren Cross, featuring works by North Texas artists who work with New Media Art. Pictured left to right, top to bottom are New Stories: New Futures artist Jessica Fuentes, Letitia Huckaby, Sedrick Huckaby, Angela Faz, Raul Rodriguez, Jin Ya Huang, Ciara Bryant, Bernardo Vallarino, Jeff Gibbons, and Nick Bontrager.
