Faces of the Fort is the Fort Wayne Public Art Commission’s initiative to celebrate the diversity, history and culture of Fort Wayne with large scale murals. The theme for phase one, completed in June 2021, is "Hometown Heroes".  Each mural depicts two members of our community who have advocated for civil rights, social justice and immigrant quality of life in our community.
