DISCUSSION:

Local artist Riley Holloway will create a series of three (3) art glass panels that illustrate ideals of equality and social justice for the A.D. Marshal Public Safety Municipal Court Building. The artist's design is inspired by Fort Worth Star-Telegram photographs of the civil rights protest held on the steps of the building on March 14, 1965, which ultimately led to the adoption of the City of Fort Worth's first Civil Rights Ordinance in 1967. The design includes protestors not only holding hands, as in the historic photographs, but also singing because song specifically, as the artist states, has often been used as a tool to galvanize and strengthen people. The artwork design highlights unity amongst diversity, reflecting today's Fort Worth community. The three 5 foot by x 5 foot glass art panels will be created with a combination of digital printing, airbrush, and hand painting techniques. The work will replace the existing clear glass panels over the three banks of double doors in the vestibule leading into the lobby of the building as a welcoming gesture.

On February 19, 2018, Riley Holloway was placed under a final design agreement (City Secretary Contract No. 50274).

Fort Worth Art Commission (FWAC) Action: On November 12, 2018, the FWAC approved the artist's final design and recommended the artist to be placed under an artwork commission contract.

Funding for this project was included in the Public Art Plan for the 2014 Bond Program, Proposition 5, adopted by the City Council on October 21, 2014, as M&C G-18339, which stated that "additional funds from the Public Art Fund may be required to augment the budget."  On October 17, 2017, as M&C G-19139, City Council adopted the Fort Worth Public Art Fiscal Year 2018 Annual Work Plan, which includes funds in the amount of $20,000.00 from the Public Art Fund for the Public Safety Municipal Court Building Project.
