About Us

We have implemented more than forty public art projects in both rural and urban settings. Our goal is to strategically leverage the power of public art to change the character and purpose of public spaces. 

Alexandra Hall is an Indiana University, Bloomington graduate and an accomplished artist whose artworks can be found in private and public collections throughout the United States. She has a BA in Political Science and a BA in Slavic Languages and Literature. Since 2014 she has worked as a professional painter, muralist, and illustrator.

In 2016 she developed Art This Way, a public art program which implements large scale public art in Downtown Fort Wayne, IN, and she manages the program for the Fort Wayne Downtown Improvement District. 

Alexandra served on the Fort Wayne Public Art Commission Steering Committee, which wrote, analyzed, and developed the Fort Wayne Public Art Commission’s guidelines. She now serves as a consultant for the Fort Wayne Public Art Commission. She was the developer and public art consultant for Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne and the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership’s Make It Your Own Mural Fest.

She is currently managing the Art This Way program, managing five projects for Red Development, developing and managing the Liv Co Walls mural festival in New York, and consulting on six projects for the NewAllen Alliance, an economic development organization which represents seven Indiana communities.

“Murals activate public spaces, reinventing their use and purpose,” said Hall, also the founder of Art This Way and owner of AH Public Spaces Consulting. “By creating a cultural destination, we engage an audience while they move from business to business within a community.”

“.. investment in culture can create these economic booms,” she says. “We always talk about 'staying power' and the 'young people coming here', or 'what makes the young people stay'. And I think that we have neglected how important it is to have a really unique culture, and part of that culture is artistic expression.”

“All cities have something to learn from Fort Wayne’s understanding of how public art can shape a community (and hey, you’ll snap plenty of colorful Insta moments strolling around here, too).”
