McGroarty Arts Center is hosting “What is in your heart? – The world is listening” an inspirational interactive public art installation. This installation is a project under the umbrella of the-green-heart, the brainchild of internationally recognized artist and author Petra Eiko. This is the fourth installation of the-green-heart project.
The-green-heart is a platform to increase peace, encouraging people to realize their full potential thus improving the world around them. Eiko’s “What is in your heart?” project entices viewers to pause for a moment in order to contemplate life, love and things that are meaningful. Sheets of paper are provided for visitors to express their thoughts upon and post on Petra’s art piece. The juxtaposition of these handwritten or drawn notes with the artwork promotes the feeling of community and connectivity.
“It is so important in our times, where we all tend to separate more and more, to have something that draws us together … and this art project does just that,” said Eiko. “To be part of this project is a truly inspiring experience for all of us.”
A special reception is held at the McGroarty Art Center on Jan. 29, from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. Everybody is invited to meet Eiko. She will discuss the-green-heart project and guests can enjoy more of her artwork that will be on display. She will also read excerpts from her latest book “Heart.” The exhibit will run Monday–Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. through Feb.18.
