Brief Description

Faces of the Fort is a project designed to share faces of the community through large-scale murals
strategically located across Fort Wayne. The project seeks to elevate civil rights and social justice stories as
well as the stories of new Americans who have moved to Fort Wayne in the recent past. The purpose of
elevating these members of our community is to showcase their stories and ideas for a more equitable and
inclusive future for all City residents. We believe this project is important in aiding the community in
celebrating their uniqueness through unifying murals and exposing and honoring stories of different
backgrounds of fellow residents.
