About Us

Fort Wayne HeART of the City is a collective of artists and art lovers brought together to help network and educate creatives in and around NE Indiana.

Fort Wayne HeART of the City supports local creatives of Fort Wayne and bridges the gap between established and aspiring artists. Through networking opportunities, professional development and art education lectures, and unjuried exhibitions, newer artists are able to enter into the creative space, armed with the tools they need to be successful. HOTC also supports local businesses by building connections on behalf of local artists. Because of this, local artists are given more art show opportunities to promote and sell their work. HOTC advocates for local individuals, organizations, and businesses by promoting them via social media and other marketing channels.

ArtistĀ Supporting Artist

Fort Wayne HeART of the City is all-inclusive without a mainstream agenda.
