Fort Wayne, Indiana: why anyone who loves art needs to visit

The Bradley is a personal labor of love for Vera Bradley co-founder Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, who partnered with Provenance Hotels to open Fort Wayne's first boutique property, located a few blocks from the confluence of the St. Marys, St. Joseph, and Maumee rivers. 

The 124-room and nine-suite hotel brims with sophistication from Birdie’s, a Miami-style rooftop bistro with views overlooking the city, to a rotating collection of local art in the main-floor gallery curated by the Purdue University Fort Wayne Department of Art and Design. Artwork from more established artists is sprinkled throughout the lobby and in guest rooms.
