Baisden believes that the projects outlined in the plan will add new life to the city's already vibrant skyline.

After a solid year of fact finding, research and community engagement, Fort Wayne's Public Art Master was officially revealed on Wednesday evening at the Arts United Center on the downtown Arts Campus.

From neighborhood murals and topographic light displays to a wide variety of sculptures, downtown discovery walks and public art trails, seemingly every avenue of expression is being discussed.

Yesterday WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with the city's Public Art Program Manager, Dan Baisden, to discuss how the plan, called Art for All, will live up to its name.

You can learn more about the Public Art Plan and Commission at the Fort Wayne Community Development website.

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.
