The latest efforts to provide a welcoming entrance to our community are now underway. Local artist Jerrod Tobias is painting a mural along the underpass at Clay and Main streets.

Clay Main Mural smallThis is the first phase of the work on the underpass that acts as a gateway from the north side neighborhoods into downtown Fort Wayne and specifically into the arts campus. This is part of the City’s comprehensive plan, called Front Door Fort Wayne, to transform the most well-traveled corridors and gateways and welcome people to the community. The mural is funded by Legacy dollars and is the first phase of improvements. Later work will include repairing and painting the underpass and installing lights to illuminate the mural. Some of this work will be funded by the City of Fort Wayne Redevelopment Commission. Future phases may include installation of metal sculptural dancers, which will be backlit to make it look as if they are dancing.
