About

The heart is culturally significant and universally recognizable and its shape is entrenched in our psyche as a cultural icon. The heart is found in clothing, accessories, architecture, art, video games, restaurant menus, and even on top of our morning lattes. The heart is a significant expression of a shared understanding; a feeling without words. It is a logograph, used to express a biological organ in its metaphorical or symbolic sense as the centre of emotion, including affection and love. It has a universally recognizable profile and meaning which connotes love. Hearts remind us of who we love and why. Hearts are known to be the center of life, and of all beings. It can take on an entity of its own, becoming broken, happy, wise, grieving, and healing.

Residents will be invited to ponder the significance of the heart through a short narrative by the artist. With the foundation of the hearts shared understanding, participants will be asked to consider how culture and the arts contribute to their health & wellbeing. These written thoughts will be adhered to the large 4 X 5 X 3 ft community heart sculpture as a lasting statement of the vital need for culture in the lives and consciousness of humanity.
