Golden Year for Antiques and Art

The Fort Worth Show of Antiques and Art is the oldest of its kind in the American West. Founded in 1963 as the Dolly Johnson Antique Show, the event features more than 100 vendors from across the country and pieces ranging from 10-feet long primitive oil paintings to mid-century modern sculpture. Dolly Johnson founded the show at the encouragement of her husband, R. E. “Rip” Johnson, a Fort Worth businessman and former director of Will Rogers Memorial Center. During its 50th-anniversary celebration, expect to spend all day Friday, March 8, and Saturday, March 9, at Will Rogers exploring the past through art.
