Nebraska Neighborhood Mural
The Nebraska Neighborhood mural is on the east façade of 1804 W. Main St. This piece was designed to embody and celebrate the Nebraska Neighborhood’s rich history. Themes incorporated into the work include Kekionga Baseball team, The Wayne Knitting Mills, Camp Allen, Jaenicke Gardens, and Swinney Park. The muralist was chosen through an open call for artists.

The muralist, Jeff Pilkinton, lived close to Nebraska Neighborhood as a child. Pilkinton is an established chalk-artist, street painter, and muralist based in Fort Wayne.  Learn more about the artist at https://jeffpilkinton.com/

The project was made possible with the support of the Nebraska Neighborhood Association, Chris Shatto, Matt Momper, and the building owner Frank Casagrande. It was funded by the City of Fort Wayne’s Investing in Neighborhoods Now funds dedicated to the Public Art Commission by the Northwest Area Partnership.
