Fort Wayne's Mural Mania Hits Local Music Venue
Last spring, the Fort Wayne Free Art Collective was formed, and quietly began leaving small pieces of free artwork around the city, which they call "art drops."
Now, the group's canvas, and its presence, have grown to larger than life proportions, with the completion of a 30 by 70 foot mural, on the south side of The Brass Rail Bar and music venue.
The Broadway neighborhood has already given a big thumbs up to this vibrant, communal artwork, and the FWFAC considers it an honor to have been allowed to execute its 1st major piece at what it considers to be the city's artistic mecca.
WBOI's Julia Meek met with collective co-founder, Lissa Brown, and Brass Rail co-owner, Corey Rader, to learn what this project represents to both enterprises, and its impact on Fort Wayne's public art scene.
