The Fort Worth Community Arts Center (FWCAC) is seeking exhibition proposals from artists and curators for western based artwork to exhibit in “Cultura Del Vaquero” during January and February 2020.

Deadline: October 1, 2019

The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo is the oldest continuously running livestock show and rodeo. It has been held annually in Fort Worth, Texas since 1896, traditionally in mid-January through early February. In March 1918, the Fort Worth Stock Show first went indoors at Cowtown Coliseum in the Fort Worth Stockyards. A century later, the Stock Show Rodeo is held at the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum and has been there since 1944.

The Fort Worth Community Arts Center, neighbor to the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum, will dedicate January and February, 2020 to the spirit of the west. 9000 sq ft of gallery space will be dedicated to works that embrace the spirit and theme of western based artwork. This year we have 5 galleries available ranging from 300 to 1800 sq ft. We invite artists from all 50 states to submit works of a western theme as a solo or curatorial proposal. Proposals will be accepted through October 1, 2019 and the show will run from Friday, 01/3/20 to 02/15/20. The Stock Show Rodeo anticipates more than 1 million people during the run of the event.
