Artist Open Call Request for Veteran-Themed Mural
FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The Art This Way program in Downtown Fort Wayne is seeking qualified artists to apply for a veteran-themed mural!
Art This Way and Downtown Improvement District (DID) are pleased to partner with Warrior Breed MC and Main at Harrison, LLC, owned by Steve Shine, Tom Hardin, and Al McComb, on a mural project located at 135 West Main St, Fort Wayne, IN 46802. This 2,000 square foot mural aspires to honor past and current veterans, including persons who served or currently serve in the military, naval, or air service.
Warrior Breed MC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, veteran-based, traditional motorcycle club, focusing on veteran issues such as TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), and Veteran Suicide Prevention. Warrior Breed MC’s mission is to take care of those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, which the club demonstrates through charitable work and public projects.
“Warrior Breed MC is proud to partner with Art This Way and the Downtown Improvement District in this very significant mission, honoring our military and veterans through art,” said Founder of Warrior Breed MC Gary Perkey.
“This is a country-wide request for qualifications. We welcome artists of all abilities who are 18 or older to apply. Extra consideration will go to veterans or artists who have a direct connection with a veteran,” stated Art This Way Program Coordinator Alex Hall. “The mural will face South Harrison St in Downtown Fort Wayne, and it will further saturate the Downtown core with public art, helping mark the planned urban trail.”
Applications are open now until July 18, 2021.
Warrior Breed Motorcycle Club generously provided the funding for this project.
