FORT WAYNE, Ind. (NBC33) - There is a public art display making waves that is actually designed to spread love and pride in the Summit City.

At least that's the goal of "Love, Fort Wayne" and Artlink's Chalk Wall exhibit outside the Wunderkammer studio on Fairfield Avenue.

The piece asks the public to complete the simple message "I love the '07 because _____." The '07 is a reference to the 46807 zip code. Messages of pride and community unity have already begun to fill the wall, but this is just the beginning according to the people behind the display.
