Andrei Krautsou of Key Detail of Minsk, Belarus, adds color to the south wall of Fort Wayne Orthopedics.

The south wall of Fort Wayne Orthopedics at 201 W. Wayne St. in Fort Wayne is reaving its new look.

Key Detail of Minsk, Belarus, is creating the Allen County mural as part of the Make It Your Own Mural Fest, which concludes Sept. 18 across northeast Indiana’s 11 counties. The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership has collaborated with Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne Inc. on the project.

The Key Detail is husband-and-wife team of Andrei Krautsou and Juliya Puhach and son Max, 2. “Indiana is the place where we always feel welcomed. It is the state where we have done several important projects for us,” the artists said in a statement.

Andrei began the work by climbing scaffolding to trace the outline of the artwork. Colors continued to flow into the weekend, as spectators and media were attracted to the project. The wall can be seen at a glance from Washington Boulevard.

The regional mural festival concept, the first of its kind in the state, is an activation of the Make It Your Own brand intended to enhance the region’s efforts to drive talent attraction, talent retention and tourism by investing in quality of place assets and public art.
