Burkhart Sign Systems was proud to produce and help plan the African American Landmark Tour. This project consisted of working closely with members from the Civil Rights Heritage Center and IUSB (Indiana University of South Bend). Together we created a wayfinding system that lead people along the tour to various locations. At each location there was a simple plaque posted on a post indicating the significance of the location and the impact it had on Civil Rights. The main leadoff sign is located at the Natatorium the heart and soul of one of South Bend’s first historic neighborhood.
This program was created by close involvement with Burkhart Sign Systems and the passionate members of the Civil Rights Heritage Center. To learn more about the tour, see additional examples of the art work and find a map of the route check out the website:
