The City of Fort Wayne’s Public Art Commission is looking for artists to create a sculpture commemorating the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The public display will include quotes from King’s 1963 speech given in Fort Wayne. A committee was created at the request of City Council to help select an artist to install a memorial. It consists of community civic leaders, professionals in historic documentation, arts organizations and the faith-based community. Submissions are due by March 21, 2021.
