Art at Our Places

The Science of Human Engagement

Art has the ability to evoke a memory, inspire a social movement, and transcend generations.

An integral component in EDENS’ mission to enrich community through human engagement, art at our places activates an existing landscape to spark conversations and encourages people to authentically connect.

Art is human expression.

Always unique, art gives us identity.

A collection of values and beliefs, identity is the cornerstone of feeling a sense of belonging to a place, to a culture, to a community — to a sum that is greater than the parts. Art helps us celebrate the differences that make up our world.

Art is communication.

Art gives us the freedom to react, form opinions, and share ideas.

Like a language, it gives us a unifier to convey complex emotion. Through art, we can engage in thought-provoking conversations that bring us closer.

Art is healing.

Art helps us pause, meditate and reflect to better understand ourselves.

Throughout history, we have treated art in music, dance, writing and painting as a way to soothe and stimulate our minds, bodies and souls.

Art is a shared experience.

Art creates meaning that uplifts us all.

Art keeps us connected in real life, telling our stories across generations for a richer understanding of history. When we feel a part of something bigger than ourselves, prosperity follows – economically, socially, culturally and soulfully.
