Title:
Fort Wayne Bicentennial Gateway Markers
Description:
In honor of the city's bicentennial, five monuments were erected at the entry points to Fort Wayne. Encircled with ceramic tiles, each symbolizes a prominent element of the city: technology, transportation, industry, agriculture, and people and community. Each of the monuments is inscribed "1794" and has a concrete representation of the three rivers.

These ceramic tiles were created by the artist Patricia Ade Hansen as a sample for the final artworks.
