Fort Worth Community Arts Center presents "Cultura Del Vaquero" opening reception
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 2019 to the spirit of the west. 9,000 square feet of gallery space will be dedicated to works that embrace the spirit and theme of western-based artwork.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through February 20.
