FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - A public art commission in Fort Wayne is becoming a reality.

City council approved the commission in a vote of 6 to 3 Tuesday.

This commission will allow more art, such as sculptures, in neighborhoods and other parts of the city.

Part of the proposal includes requiring businesses who receive tax benefits from the city to contribute 1% of that benefit to a public art fund.

That requirement ends in 2022 so future councils can look at how the public art commission is working.
