The Fort Wayne Public Art Commission is asking the public for their opinions regarding public art.

Residents can submit their ideas about what kind of public art they’d like to see at the website www.FortWaynePublicArt.com through June 21.

 

The website features an interactive map that allows visitors to the website to drop a pin, or mark a location, on a city map where they would like to see a public art installation. Along with that, a “submit idea” feature on the website allows visitors to upload images to add more details. Residents are asked to complete an online survey relating to public art in the city as well.

 

Public input through the website will be accepted through June 21.

 

Input provided by residents, as well as information from public meetings will be used by consultants from Designing Local of Columbus, Ohio to create the Fort Wayne Public Art Master Plan. The plan is being developed for the Public Art Commission in partnership with the City of Fort Wayne Community Development Division and Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne.

 

The master plan will lay out a comprehensive vision for public artworks, such as murals and sculptures, now and in the future and will help define locations and projects appropriate for Fort Wayne and its neighborhoods. The plan will outline a final vision, including placement of murals and sculptures. It will also identify a method of development and sustainment for the city’s Public Artwork.
