University of Saint Francis Creative Arts and Professor Tim Parsley’s Mural Dedication
Join us for the University of Saint Francis Creative Arts and Professor Tim Parsley’s mural dedication on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 3:00 P.M. at 1217 Broadway!
Art This Way and Downtown Improvement District (DID) are pleased to partner with University of Saint Francis Creative Arts and Professor Tim Parsley on this mural project, located at 1217 Broadway, Fort Wayne, IN 46802. This will be Art This Way’s second gateway mural project; these gateway murals aim to welcome visitors as they drive into our Downtown.
Students involved in this mural have gained valuable experience and developed unique insight into the process of mural installation. Professor Parsley and his Saint Francis Creative Arts students have twice contributed to our city’s growing art collection. In the spring of 2018 Parsley and his students painted Parsley’s ‘Arouse, for you must justify me!’ mural in Downtown Fort Wayne. This work recognized the famous American poet Walt Whitman. This year Professor Parsley and his students painted Parsley’s concept, a John James Audubon inspired work. We hope that you are able to join us to celebrate the dedication of this new public art! We will be passing out free cookies while supplies last!
Funding for this project is made possible in part by the Fort Wayne Downtown Improvement District and sponsors of Art This Way. The project is further made possible thanks to Dane Leitch, owner of Aaron’s Fine Rug Gallery
