The Arts Council of Fort Worth recently received a Cultural District grant award of $225,000 from the Texas Commission on the Arts for a free after-dark community event that premieres art works by internationally-recognized new media artists Quayola from Italy and Anadol from Los Angeles.

These new media works will be projected on all four sides of the historic Pioneer Tower at Will Rogers Memorial Center, illuminating the structure in the night skies of Fort Worth during the last weekend of February 2021.

Combined with City of Fort Worth and other grant funds, this $1.2 million project supports the creation and presentation of the first of four major iconic public artworks that will join the Fort Worth Public Art collection.
