Event Description:
Eight years ago, the Arts Council of Fort Worth introduced the Heart of Gold Awards to recognize the outstanding contributions of the individuals and institutions who go above and beyond to aid in our mission to promote, nurture, and support the arts in Fort Worth. In a normal year, over three-hundred arts supporters would gather for lunch to cheer remarkable individuals like last year?s Heart of Gold recipient Rosalyn G. Rosenthal and Lifetime Achievement in the Arts recipient Margo Dean. This October, the Arts Council of Fort Worth is adapting the Heart of Gold Awards to highlight another reason to celebrate: the arts are not only remaining resilient, they are working harder than ever to keep our community safe and connected during the pandemic. Theater costume shops are producing personal protective equipment for retirement communities, visual artists are inspiring neighborhoods with murals, musicians are breaking new grounds with digital performances. This year?s Heart of Gold will celebrate all this and more. At this safely-distanced event, Heart of Gold guests will enjoy an evening at Coyote Drive-In theater where the Arts Council will debut a mini-documentary celebrating outstanding philanthropists, arts administrators, and creative leaders who are helping our community rise above the challenges of this year through the arts. There will also be entertainment from local groups like Amphibian Stage?s Tad-Poles, Lone Star Film Festival, Mariachi Centenario, singer-songwriter Ginny Mac, and more performers and featured artists will be added to the program over the next two weeks. Tickets are $20 per vehicle and every dollar helps raise funds to support the Arts Council of Fort Worth as they continue to provide much needed grants to our arts community, engage artists and neighborhoods through public art projects, present educational digital and in-person programming, and manage ten galleries and two theatres through the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. This event is made possible thanks to support from Coyote Drive-In and event sponsors including Frost Bank, BNSF Railway, Maddie and Larry Lesnick, and Fort Worth Magazine. Heart of Gold will take place Wednesday, October 21, 2020. Pre-show entertainment begins at 7:30 p.m. at Coyote Drive-In, 223 NE 4th Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76164.
