Whether you’re a community space or a company, we believe you have a story. At EG Structural, it is our mission to bring it to life. We’re founded on the principle that functional public art can exhibit the incredible identity behind the communities and commercial properties where they stand. Read our article below to learn how large-scale art resonates with your community.
Public Art Installations Create a Community Identity
Large-scale art is a powerful tool in creating a sense of community identity. It has the power to create a display that emphasizes everything unique to one’s home. Whether it honors your town’s history, people, culture, or geography, public art has a way of bringing out your community’s uniqueness. By adding installations that highlight the community’s rich history, it connects people towards a common landmark resulting in greater pride for where they live or grew up.
Large-Scale Art Can Test Human Perception and Introspection
As you probably well know, art has a tremendous impact on our mental and emotional state. It can evoke a strong response that oftentimes can leave us feeling happy, angry, sad, and even confused. When you amplify it by its sheer size, it can evoke even more feelings!
Investing in large-scale sculptures or monumental buildings has always been a good way to exercise power, to amaze, or sometimes simply to inspire. Big has been seen as equal to mighty. That is why statues and sculptures in ancient Greece and Rome were made to be larger than life, to emphasize the power and might of subjects like gods and heroes.
Today is no different. We still get inspired by large sculpture pieces and we’re left in awe at the sheer craftsmanship to build such a structure. A skilled public artist will have the skills and knowledge needed to build a piece of public art that truly resonates.
Large-Scale Art Can Inspire Appreciation for the Arts
As mentioned, large-scale art installations can inspire awe, and draw out deep emotions like happiness, sadness, and anger. Additionally, it can satisfy our appetite for something beautiful and engaging. Art appreciation is in the details, the craftsmanship, the creative vision, and the execution of an idea.
Well-executed public art reveals its meaning over time, influencing repeated visits and greater interest in communities. Additionally, it has the ability to beautify our shared environment and celebrate the things that make us great. Not everyone can visit an art museum or attend a gallery, but public art is for everyone.
