Fort Wayne once again is highlighted for our city’s creativity in a recent Chicago Tribune article by Joanne Cleaver.

“…in Fort Wayne, textile creativity is branching from the venerable Vera Bradley aesthetic to experiences at a hotel and a charitable concept shop.”

The article highlights Fort Wayne’s creative community through the “elevated experience” at The Bradley, Fort Wayne’s mural scene, and goodMRKT’s good mission. Other Fort Wayne highlights include –
