Women are Transforming Fort Wayne with Public Art

Stephanie Gottesman & Alex Hall

In our interview, Alex shares how she left behind a path toward medical school to pursue her love for painting, and how that has grown into a career that allows her to travel nationally and internationally with her artwork. She also shares about her latest project – illustrations for a children’s book called The Zookeeper by Jessie Strock. She also shares her advice for aspiring artists.


Her artwork is largely inspired by travel, but her home base is here in Fort Wayne. She talks about her love for this city, and the ways she is using the Art This Way project to put our city on an international stage. She also talks about the economic impact of her public art projects, and the work she’s doing to transform our downtown.

She talks about the Art This Way Art Crawl coming up in September. Here’s a link to the Facebook event:
