“Love Where You Live” encourages collaboration between local businesses. Local company, DeNyse Sign Company was hired to fabricate the heart-shaped canvases that each artist painted. While Paulding Precast Products, and Print South Media based in Villa Rica sponsored the project to create the bases and plaques that go along with each heart. Throughout the project, the CAC has received support from GreyStone Power Company, who in addition to sponsoring one of the hearts, believes in the positive power of public art in Douglas County.
Public art enriches the community and improves our quality of life through its ability to enrich the environment, to ignite the imagination, encouraging thought and prompting discourse. Public art benefits the community through placemaking, bringing people together, and can be used as a tool in economic development. Public art can also strengthen personal connections to one’s community. Learn more about the CAC’s public art projects at www.artsdouglas.org/current-public-art-projects
