FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Rivergreenway will have a bit more color to it along some stretches this summer.

The City of Fort Wayne partnered last year with Artlink Contemporary Gallery to find local artists willing to transform 10 old Citilink bus stop benches into functional works of art.

Now, those benches are ready to be shown off.

A spokesperson for Artlink Contemporary Gallery says the benches will be unveiled from 7 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday along Main Street in front of the Auer Center. Then, the benches will be installed along the downtown Rivergreenway sometime in June.
