Art on the Plaza Highlights Diversity, Inclusiveness

I&M is contributing to the robust downtown Fort Wayne art scene and demonstrating our support for an inclusive community by sponsoring an Art Activation and display on the Indiana Michigan Power Center Plaza.

Artists created murals on plywood last weekend on the plaza, and the art will remain on display on the plaza until just prior to the annual wreath installation in November. I&M will donate the art to local non-profit agencies.

Art This Way and the Fort Wayne Downtown Improvement District hosted the activation Saturday and Sunday.

“The importance around diversity and inclusion is fundamental to the people at Indiana Michigan Power who keep the lights on 24/7 and power the lives and business in the area,” said Toby Thomas, President and COO, Indiana Michigan Power. “We are thrilled to be a part of this expression of art along Art This Way and emphasizing the need to treat everyone equally.”

Mural artist Jeff Pilkinton commented on the Art Activation on IMPC by saying, “I am always happy to help out and use my creativity when it comes to such positive organizations and promoting diversity. I am honored to be a part of this exciting activity.”

Additional artists who participated in this activation were: Jasmine Pilkinton, Isis Shaw, Jasmine A’shadieeyah, Sara Scott, Seddrick Lorick, Theoplis Smith III, Jaliyah Rice, Nigel Roper, Stephen Sauick, Terrence Jackson, Madison Wallace, Christina Aguilar, and Drece Guy.

I&M will donate their work to non-profits, including the Center for Nonviolence; Amani Family Services; Fort Wayne UNITED; The Boys and Girls Club; Arts United; Girlz Rock.

I&M employees who worked to showcase diversity and inclusion on the plaza included Kim Sabrosky, External Affairs Director;  Ashley Savieo, Economic & Business Development Manager; and, representing I&M’s VOICE (Valuing Organizational Improvement and Community Excellence) Employee Resource Group, Rebeca Garza, Customer Operations Supervisor, and Sherry Queener, Learning Coordinator.

They collaborated with Art This Way, which has been active in helping create the innovative and robust art displays in downtown Fort Wayne, and the Downtown Improvement District to initiate the art display.

Other public art initiatives in downtown Fort Wayne include:

  • Seven murals on Utopian Coffee
  • JUURI’s mural at 128 W. Wayne St.
  • Jeremy Stroup’s Grand Street mural
  • Additionally, Make It Your Own Mural Fest brought artist team Key Detail, and the creation of their 5,000 square foot mural.
