Dan Swartz and Charles Shepard hope the city's enthusiasm for public art will be harnessed and carried forward.

Many additions were made to Fort Wayne's visual landscape in 2014, and seemingly, sculptures have stolen the spotlight, and are springing up all over.

Everything from the restoration of the much-debated Helmholtz sculpture to the placement of the Anthony Wayne statue kept the role of public art in the news for much of the year.

WBOI's Julia Meek invited Fort Wayne Museum of Art's Charles Shepard, and Dan Swartz from Wunderkammer Company to help her inventory a few of Fort Wayne's public art achievements of 2014.

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
