The City of Fort Wayne, commissioned me from a public call for artists to engage the community with large scale artwork inspired as portrait dedications to two locals of the city who's stories serve as inspiration and motivation through positive outreach, growth and skill building endevors. 

Faces of the Fort is a public art project initiated by the Fort Wayne Public Art Commission that shares faces and stories of the community through large-scale murals. This project seeks to elevate civil rights and social justice stories of residents; past and present. The purpose of this initiative is to celebrate the uniqueness, different backgrounds, stories and ideas of fellow residents through the development of murals and throughout the City. In 2019, Public Art Commission established a Faces of the Fort Selection Committee made up of Public Art Commission members and community representatives who put out a call for artists and conducted community conversations to develop the stories the murals will tell.  In early 2021, the committee selected the individuals that would be celebrated during the first phase of installations which were installed in June of 2021 at three locations in the Northeast Southeast and Southwest quadrants of Fort Wayne.
