The Arts Council reopened the Fort Worth Community Arts Center galleries and Art Shop by appointment only on June 1.

The organization said in the announcement that it is committed to reopening responsibly and is partnering with Visit Fort Worth for the “Reopen Responsibly” campaign. The first step reopening is allowing patrons to make an appointment to browse the galleries and Art Shop.

The Arts Center is asking visitors to help keep Fort Worth safe and healthy by adhering to the Centers for Disease Control’s guidelines.
