The Art Galleries at TCU are a dynamic cultural resource presenting unique exhibitions and projects by inspiring contemporary artists. Through a rigorous curatorial process of research, creative collaboration and interdisciplinary partnerships, the galleries showcase excellent artistic practice and high-quality art, while supporting experimentation and innovation. To support students and faculty, the galleries act as a catalyst for critical dialogue and provide a vital avenue for professional development through investigation of contemporary art practices.
Located in the same building that houses the School of Art, Moudy Gallery showcases student work, including exhibitions by undergraduates and MFA students. This 900-square-foot space also functions as a responsive place for one-off or pop-up projects that students and faculty develop. TCU regularly shows its support for local professional artists by providing a collaborative environment in the Moudy Gallery as a testing ground for work-in-progress. Exhibitions or events of this kind help artists get involved in numerous ways and significantly benefit TCU students by enabling them to develop their professional networks with the local creative community.
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts (FWCA) is a satellite exhibition space located a few blocks from the School of Art, on the edge of the TCU campus. Situated on West Berry Street, a busy urban corridor, this 2,000-square-foot gallery is TCU’s public-facing art venue. It offers a great opportunity for students, faculty, staff and alumni to engage with the Dallas-Fort Worth community.
At FWCA, the curatorial focus revolves around national and international artists at different stages of their career. It often includes work that has never been shown in Texas before or that is made on-site during a residency period. This concentration means students have close access to high-quality art and can critically engage with artists on a one-on-one basis in the gallery.
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is located at 2900 W. Berry St. on the edge of the TCU Campus, Fort Worth, TX 76109.
Opportunities for Students
Students can volunteer or intern as gallery attendants. Interns are typically assigned responsibilities and research, such as overseeing social media for the galleries and researching artists’ work for future exhibition projects.
In addition, graduate students are assigned to the galleries each semester and complete weekly tasks including installation/deinstallation of exhibitions, delivery of live events and maintenance of the permanent art collection.
The Art Galleries at TCU are home to exhibitions from regional and international artists, students, faculty and alumni. To see the upcoming exhibitions in the galleries, please visit our event calendar.
