What do you love about Fort Wayne?

Artlink Executive Director Deb Washler thinks there are a lot of reasons to admire the Summit City, and she's looking for even more.

Washler and a team from Leadership Fort Wayne have come up with a new, interactive art installation encouraging residents to share why they appreciate the community, called "Love, Fort Wayne."

The project consists of huge chalk walls going up around town with blank spaces for people to write in their own reasons why they think city's worthwhile.

It’s a collaborative effort between Artlink and the “Love, Fort Wayne” team, and earlier this week, Washler met with WBOI’s Julia Meek to talk about it.
