The next location of Fort Wayne’s downtown art mural has been revealed and a new artist is being sought. 

The Art This Way Alleyway Activation Project will install the next mural on the west and north walls of the City Center Parking Garage at 840 S. Calhoun Street. The mural design is expected to account for the scale and scope of alley. The plan is for the art to use the west wall then wrap around to the north wall. 

There’s now an artist call for entry to design the space. Artists who are 18 or older must submit up to two designs and give examples of mural work or large-scale paintings. The deadline to apply is May 1. The design will be chosen through a blind jury process.  

Fort Wayne’s Downtown Improvement District (DID) and Art This Way have installed nine pieces of art within downtown alleys. The goal is to create an outdoor gallery to saturate pedestrian walkways with artwork.
