We invite you to submit stories that will help influence the creation of our Faces of the Fort Public Art Project. Stories about  Hometown Heroes may be submitted as videos or essays and should provide information about leaders, community members, and everyday people who have contributed to Fort Wayne's civil rights and social justice efforts. Stories may be personal or can highlight the work of someone else in our community. 

These stories will be used to inform the designs of two artists who will be selected to create murals that are the first in the Faces of the Fort project, recommended in the recently adopted Art for All Public Art Master Plan. Faces of the Fort will include murals throughout the city and will focus on preserving the history of Fort Wayne's diverse neighborhoods by highlighting local individuals who have made contributions to the advancement of civil rights including, but not limited to, race, gender, sexual orientation, and immigration status. 

Check out the “Submit a Story” and “About” tabs for more information about the Hometown Heroes theme.
