Thank you to all who came out to support Greater Fort Wayne Inc., The City of Fort Wayne and Electric Works as they lit up the former GE Campus for the first time at #ChristmasOnBroadway . The event offered activities, giveaways, games, music and entertainment, and food and refreshments provided by local restaurants, and had a great turnout. Many #Fergsters could also be found working the event throughout the campus. We are so thrilled for the future of this project, our downtown and our great city - and are beyond proud to be part of it. #FortWayne#ElectricWorks#LightingCeremony#DowntownFortWayne
Every time I drive by I get excited knowing this place is going to be getting new life soon.
On a side note, this is a screengrab of a video shot with a Sony A6300. We just picked one up this week and I'm exceptionally impressed by it's 4k footage 📽
Campus Lighting Ceremony Tonight! As part of Christmas on Broadway.
It’s the first public event at @ElectricWorksFW, the former General Electric campus on Broadway just south of downtown. 💡
At approximately 7:30 pm, representatives from the City and RTM will flip the switch on a holiday-themed light display that will cover several buildings on the west campus and remain lit throughout the holiday season. Guests will enjoy a mini block-party style celebration with a pop-up public plaza in the street at Swinney and Broadway in front of the former G.E. Club, with outdoor games, music, a photo booth, and beer and food from neighborhood vendors. The launch event and after-party is free to attend with food and drink available for purchase. 💡
Electric Works will be a mixed-use district of innovation, energy, and culture in a public/private partnership between RTM Ventures and the City of #FortWayne . #dtfw#DasDrone001#NEIpride#h2gindiana#DasFort

San Francisco! Oprah & I are still finalizing some things, but today from 4-6 @electricworks, I'll be signing my books for you. Many will have surprise free drawings inside that look like this. (yes, one of those is a lonely #taco on a #hughhefner notepad) Others are heavenly hotdogs. It's also Dave Eggers closing reception for his show of animal drawings AND @mcmubria has so many cool things to offer I don't even know where to begin! Don't forget, a life size set of my snowscape drawings is ready for you to pose like dead people, so really this is the event of the season. COME ON OUT!
Electric Works @electricworks presents “Ungrateful Mammals,” a solo exhibition by Dave Eggers at @minnesotastreetproject. Eggers transforms the gallery with a series of animal (both mammal and non-mammal) drawings and invites the viewers to take part in physically rearranging the exhibition. #sfart#electricworks#minnesotastreetproject#artenthusiast#daveeggers
RTM Ventures has closed the deal on acquiring the historic GE campus, which means it is one step closer to becoming Electric Works. We worked with the project’s development team in crafting a new name and brand identity for the campus and are absolutely thrilled to see it come to life. Here’s to the future of Fort Wayne! (Swipe for before and after)
@electricworks exhibition Hughen/Starkweather: Adapt, Retreat, Defend, Abandon now at @minnesotastreetproject features works from Hughen/Starkweather's ongoing project 'Shifting Shorelines'. Through Sept. 30th #sfart#drawing#painting @jenniferstarkweather @amandahughen #electricworks#minnesotastreetproject
Electric Works now at 1275 Minnesota with a show by Hughen/Starkweather: 'Adapt, Retreat, Defend, Abandon'⠀
"Adapt, Retreat, Defend, Abandon" features recent works from Hughen/Starkweather’s ongoing project, Shifting Shorelines. In this project, the artists investigate areas where land meets water, and the complex human, environmental, and historical factors that shape these places. Similar to early cartographers dependent on inconsistent tools and word-of-mouth information, Hughen/Starkweather’s research involves a trail of data, images, maps, and oral histories. The resulting drawings and paintings reinterpret the complex narratives of landscape, creating new and unexpected forms through which to view a place, its history, and its possible futures. ⠀ -⠀
