Amplify Art! Downtown Fort Wayne Crosswalk Murals

Two artists, Adam Garland and Nate Utesch, have created vibrant murals using the crosswalks on the art campus in downtown Fort Wayne. These murals have been created to inspire more crosswalk projects throughout the city and aid pedestrian visibility. Just one more taste of fun in the downtown landscape!
Riverfront Art Installations
Come to the Fort Wayne Riverfront and meet the "Faces of the Fort." This temporary art installation has been created by the residents of Fort Wayne and made to represent all people. Anchored to the riverbed, these floating pieces of art will serve as a reminder of diversity and a celebration of Fort Wayne's residents.
Picasso in September
This September 24th - November 27th, catch Picasso and the Modern Masters in Fort Wayne as FWMoA hosts special exhibit: Picasso, Braque, and Leger: 20th Century Modern Masters.
Focusing on the creative legacy of Georges Braque, Fernand Léger and Pablo Picasso, each man had the will to persist, innovate and change the course of art forever. They suffered derision for their attempts, but with the passing of time, their importance was established in the evolution of art and remains so today.
