A new mural brings a splash of color to The Landing in Downtown Fort Wayne

There's a new mural bringing a splash of color to The Landing in Downtown Fort Wayne.

During the annual Taste of the Arts festival on August 28, Fort Wayne artist Adam Garland installed a permanent mural at the intersection of Calhoun and Columbia streets. Throughout the process, he invited the public to participate by filling special, biodegradable water balloons with paint and throwing them on the street to create designs.

This mural, called “Confluence,” was coordinated by the Fort Wayne Public Art Commission.

Here are the results.
