The commission, which was established in March by the city council, oversees the city's new Public Art Program. It will commission, review and select works that will be displayed in public spaces.

The commission members will be sworn-in on August 30 and will then hold their first meeting, which will include the nomination of two working artists to the commission. The commission will oversee the Public Art Fund, which will support creation and placement of works throughout the city.

The commission members are:

  • Susan Mendenhall - Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne
