Although most community celebrations had to be cancelled or put on hold this summer due to COVID-19, the Fort Wayne Museum of Art is partnering with Arts United to carry off its 20th annual Chalk Walk, normally a signature Three Rivers Festival event--virtually.

For a close up perspective on the project, WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with museum director Charles Shepard and Dan Ross from Arts United to discuss the importance of this decision and what the event is going to look like.

She also took this opportunity to learn how the Museum fared during the worst of the COVID-19 stay-home restrictions,  the role that #ArtStartsHere has played in the community since its formation in March and what new practices both organizations are developing as the year continues to unfold.
