Father’s Day Scavenger Hunt Downtown

Art This Way and Downtown Improvement District are pleased to announce another Downtown scavenger hunt; this time a Father’s Day themed scavenger hunt contest!

The rules are simple, use the clues to answer questions about the art! Contestants may be asked to find the name of the artist, snap a selfie, find the location of the public art, or answer a question about it so they need to be sure to read the question before they start hunting. This scavenger hunt can be conducted from the comfort of a couch, from a car or on foot.

The public is invited to record their answers and submit them on-line at To participate in the contest entries must be submitted by Monday, JUNE 22, 2020 at 12:00PM.

Only one entry is permitted per household. The winner will be randomly selected out of highest scoring entries. The winner of the Father’s Day Scavenger Hunt will receive a prize valued at $100.00! A second prize will be awarded to the best mural selfie. We suggest that dad takes a photo next to Tim Parsley’s Walt Whitman mural! The ‘Selfie Challenge’ winner will receive a prize valued at $50.00.

Fort Wayne has a rich and growing collection of public art. We encourage you to visit Downtown Fort Wayne with your family and explore what our city has to offer! For assistance finding these murals, or if you would just like to see all the public art in our city, please use Visit Fort Wayne’s Public Art Map.
