11 Oct Hop River Brewing Company and Tobias Studios Announce Latest Public Mural in Fort Wayne, IN
October 10, 2018 – On Wednesday, Oct 10, Hop River Brewing Company is announcing their latest project: a commissioned mural by local artist, Jerrod Tobias of Tobias Studios. The design was created by Jerrod for Hop River Brewing Company and depicts hops, Rainbow and Brook Trout.
“This piece is symbolic of the nature of relationships, and how we continue to reconcile a shifting paradigm in human culture. The flora and fauna theme relate to several other pieces in Fort Wayne based on natural history and native species. The rainbow color pallet is a nod to the local rising tide mindset, inclusivity in our community, and the ongoing struggle for awareness and equality. I’m grateful to work with people that are mindful of responsibility in both business and personal relationships developing in Fort Wayne,” states artist, Jerrod Tobias.
“We are excited to collaborate with such a talented artist as Jerrod Tobias on this project. Fort Wayne has increasingly been showing its pride through public art displays. We are proud to provide a canvas in the Wells Corridor for both our neighbors and the wider Fort Wayne community. We look forward to exploring more ways to share our space with the community,” says Ben Jackson, Co-Owner of Hop River Brewing Company.
On Wednesday, Oct. 10 from 7pm to 9pm, come enjoy the beginning of this work of art; enjoy local, acoustic music by Samuel Harness; meet the featured artist on the display in the taproom, Sabrina Scott; and bring your own craft for our regularly scheduled Crafts & Drafts night. The mural will be completed and celebrated on Saturday, Nov. 10th from 6pm to 8pm, along with a collaboration pop-up art market with the Art Farm at the Brewery. https://www.facebook.com/events/337397577018712/
