TCC Supports Youth with Main Street Arts Sponsorship

Main Street News RotatorFor the first time, Tarrant County College is one of five official sponsors for this year’s Main Street Arts Festival, which runs from April 10-13 in downtown Fort Worth. Consistent with TCC’s commitment to putting success within reach for current and future students, the College will sponsor the Growing Young Artists program including a Young People’s Art Fair.
Located in Main Street Creates! at Main Street and Weatherford, the Young People’s Art Fair will feature works for sale from more than 300 Fort Worth artists ages 7-17. Two TCC art instructors will serve as jurors of the Young People’s Art Fair; Eduardo Aguilar, TCC Northwest Campus art professor, will serve as one of the jurors for Main Street Festival overall.
Artwork created by TCC faculty and students will be exhibited, showing off the expertise in our various art programs. In addition to appearances by Toro at noon on Saturday and Sunday, TCC employees will staff two informational booths – one in Main Street Creates! and one at the corner of Main and Fourth streets, at which people can learn more about the programs TCC offers.
A special thanks in advance to the more than 50 volunteers who are making TCC’s participation possible.
