For 50 years IPFW has enhanced northeast Indiana’s intellectual, cultural, economic, physical, and creative quality of life by providing and preserving educational and recreational resources for public benefit. During its 50th anniversary celebration, IPFW embarks on the path to permanently enhance the visual landscape of its campus and community.
Sculpture with Purpose—IPFW’s flagship 50th project—will enrich Fort Wayne with sculptural bike racks. These 50 sculptures will engage the entire community, as they will be installed widely throughout our area, based on sponsorship and visibility. Through innovative designs specifically crafted to accommodate bicycle parking, Sculpture with Purpose encourages the benefits of cycling while enriching the streets with art for everyone to enjoy. It is a tribute to Fort Wayne’s passion, momentum, and innovative spirit. Sculpture with Purpose is a new legacy to be enjoyed for generations to come.
IPFW and Fort Wayne—Since 1964, moving forward together has defined who we are.
