The Experience of a Collector: A Personal View to Social Change
Dr. Walker is director of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. His talk is a personal recollection of the power of collecting as an experience that not only shapes personal identity, but also defines social action.
FWADA members include independent art dealers, non-profit exhibition spaces, museums, and university galleries. These institutions bring noteworthy and meaningful art before the public by organizing, funding, and hosting open exhibitions. In addition, they work to stimulate the community's awareness of visual art through educational programs, by supporting art competitions such as Art in the Metroplex, and with events such as Fort Worth Gallery Night and Artist's Christmas. FWADA also supports and participates in EASL, the Emergency Artists Support League, which provides emergency economic aid to artists who have suffered major misfortunes. These activities give FWADA a pivotal role in the establishment and maintenance of a full and vital visual arts community—one they assume with great pride.
