The six mosaic murals are entitled “Cowboy”, “Cowgirl”, “Rodeo”, “An Hispanic Voice”, “An African-American Tradition”, and “Stock Show”. They are an appreciation of Western Heritage in Fort Worth’s history and are located at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in the heart of the cultural district. The site serves Fort Worth’s signature museums as well as the Stock Show, equestrian events, and other entertainments. The artwork designs respond to the historical Art Moderne style of architecture so unique to the Will Rogers Memorial Center, having been built as part of Fort Worth’s 1936 Frontier Centennial.
