What you'll do

We have an evolving public art culture that is largely powered by grassroots efforts. I will take you to see most of the public art in downtown. I can tell you about the artists and the stories behind the works. I can also answer questions and give insight into the community organizations that power our public art installations! This is a a three mile walking tour (2 hours of walking). The tour will take us to all corners of downtown Fort Wayne. We will start at the Depot, the only surviving example of that style of train depot in the world. Midway through the walk we will stop in a local spot, enjoy a hot beverage of your choice (on me), and I will teach you one of my favorite drawing games. The entire tour and coffee shop stop should last 2 hours. This is an outdoor tour, so it is best to book in nice weather. The tour is unavailable in ice, snow or heavy rain.

Alexandra

My name is Alex, and I am a local studio artist & muralist. I've been working as a full-time artist for 6 years. I travel the country selling my paintings & installing murals. I am also a passionate advocate for public art. The public realm is greatly enhanced by art, and in order to promote & increase the amount of public art in Fort Wayne, I partnered with our downtown economic improvement district to build a comprehensive public art program, Art This Way. (www.ArtThisWayFW.com). I also have two pieces of public art installed in downtown.
