ABOUT THE JUROR: William Campbell
William Campbell Contemporary Art is pleased to announce its 44th Anniversary having opened on November 24, 1974.
Through the years, Bill and Pam Campbell have become an integral part of the Texas art scene. They have dealt with some of the most important artists of the day, as well as some of the most promising ones that have come to their notice. Many of the latter have become the former.
The years have brought an ever-widening circle of involvements in the art world, as well as a life beyond anything ever expected. “We still get excited about seeing a great work of art for the first time and feel tremendous joy every time our efforts bear fruit on behalf of an artist.
The Campbells’ community involvement has included leadership roles and behind-the-scenes support of worthwhile activities. Their deepest satisfaction has been in connecting several generations of artists and collectors with one another, within the gallery and beyond to the national and international level. “Watching and being a part of artists’ thriving careers has been exceedingly rewarding!
ABOUT US: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century. The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.
