Public art is an incredible economic innovator that generates excitement towards one’s community. It encompasses a wide variety of creative expressions that brings people together through dazzling construction and detail. While some people view art pieces as a way to beautify spaces, art can be used to initiate civic dialogue and give life to the community identity. Installing a large-scale art piece can be a challenging task, but its results can be very lucrative for your community.
EG Structural is on a mission to enrich communities with exciting large-scale art pieces that drive their economy and beautify their spaces. We’re founded on the principle that functional sculpture pieces can exhibit the incredible identity behind communities and commercial properties. Read our blog post below and learn why cities and towns are investing in public art for their communities.
Large-Scale Art Pieces Create a Community Identity
Whether you are looking at their history, people, culture, or geography, every community is unique. As public artists, it is our job to create designs that resonate and highlight the community’s rich history. Doing so results in a deeper pride from residents, and demands the attention of out-of-towners.
Look at EG Structural’s Tulsa, Oklahoma Route 66 landmark. It encompasses the city’s rich history along the Mother Road by showcasing its grandeur through sheer size and structural innovation. During the development of this project, we conducted extensive research into the town’s history with Route 66 and worked closely with local community members to conceptualize the city’s identity.
Public Art Pieces Enhance Appreciation for Art
As you probably know, large-scale art installations can inspire awe, and draw out deep emotions from their viewers. Additionally, it can satisfy our appetite for something beautiful and engaging. Art appreciation is in the details, the craftsmanship, and the creative vision and execution of an idea.
Well-executed public art reveals its meaning over time, influencing repeated visits and creating more interest in the communities they’re located in. Additionally, it has the ability to beautify our shared environment and celebrate the things that make the area great. It’s our job as artists to create a space that everyone is welcome to experience.
Public Art Brings Awareness to Social Issues
Strategically executed public art can raise awareness towards issues plaguing the community. For centuries, people have been designing art that is a response to affairs happening around them. Today is no different; many artists are expressing their frustrations through art. Moreover, it has an astounding effect on the public by engaging them in civic dialogue.
