The Importance of Public Art in Our Parks

Incorporating art into public parks is a cultural aesthetic that we love taking advantage of. It’s not always fitting to every park, but in neighborhoods with rich history and culture, we find that a public display of art is like the cherry on top.

Incorporating art into your parks has many benefits. Not only can it give a chance for the local artists in your community to thrive and show off their talent, but it can also add gorgeous and colorful accents to the overall design as well as provide knowledge and education to visitors from all over. It can be a true and meaningful representation for what you want your community to mean to others.

Public art can be fashioned of bronze, brick, wood, steel, or fabric; it can be a mural, a sculpture, a park bench or a banner. Talk to DVD today about how an art installation in your park and community centers can become thought-provoking cultural landmarks and provide a sense of community & cohesion.
