“Strolling Sundance,” a pop-up walkable outdoor gallery in Sundance Square, will showcase the works of Fort Worth artists who collectively won $100,000 in grants awarded as part of “The New Normal: An Artist’s Response to COVID-19,” a funding initiative. 

The exhibition is open May 7-28.

“The New Normal” was launched in 2020 with funding by Fine Line Group (the family offices of Sasha and Ed Bass), the Alice Walton Foundation, the Donny Wiley Memorial Fund at the North Texas Community Foundation, and Kit and Charlie Moncrief.

Artistic works in sculpture, painting, drawing, mixed media, photography and video are among the 50-plus winning pieces in the exhibit.

“The Sundance Stroll is a public invitation for all ages to visit downtown and enjoy the creativity of our extremely talented local artist community,” said Bill Boecker, president of Sundance Square Management. “Of course, we are not out of the COVID-19 woods yet, but strolling this outdoor gallery of art is safe for families. Additionally, our shops and restaurants are open for business and are following recommended face mask and social distancing protocols.”

The walking tour will be from sidewalks in Sundance Square along Houston and Third streets. Background information on the displaying artists will be posted on Sundance Square’s website throughout the exhibit.

Parking for the exhibit is free during May as part of Sundance’s complimentary daytime short-term parking in Garage No. 3, 345 W. Third St. Free weeknight and weekend parking is provided by the Downtown TIF District in select garages, including Sundance Garage No. 3.
