Art This Way seeking muralist

The Art This Way program in downtown Fort Wayne is seeking qualified artists to apply for a unity-themed mural. 

The 4,000-square-foot mural will be in the 600 block of South Harrison Street between The Landing and Promenade Park and is meant to celebrate our community.

“We not only embrace our differences — we celebrate them — not always with parties or parades but by living, working, and laughing together side by side in daily life, respecting each other, and realizing that our similarities bind us far more than any differences can separate us,” a press release from Downtown Improvement District said. “We want this mural to be a vibrant, uplifting, visual representation of our city’s diversity that celebrates how we welcome all into our community.”

Vintage clothing store opens in record shop

Deadstock Vintage and Welcome Back Records have opened at the former Wildwood Liquor store, 3019 Broadway, just south of downtown Fort Wayne. 

The store, which combines the vintage clothing venture being run by Isaac Sparks and Caitlin Dostal with Morrison Agen’s vinyl record offerings, grew from the interest Sparks, 20, had in finding vintage items for himself. 

The store, which opened this month, features a variety of unique clothing, from concert T-shirts and those bearing pop culture references from the past, to jackets, shoes, and more. 

Deadstock Vintage is open 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
