WHY  WORDS  WORK

Integrating words with form makes for powerful public art:

They take you there.

Real voices, of real people, bring the experience to life.

You can identify.

You read the words of a real person you can identify with.

You participate.

You read and think about what you have read.

They offer complexity and diversity.

They allow for the inclusion of many roles, persons, attitudes, experiences, and places.

They involve you on many levels.

They educate, they remind, they inspire, they generate curiosity. Powerful texts help you feel AND think.

Each visit brings a new experience.

You may reinterpret a quote you read on an earlier visit, or you may relate the words to another text or to the sculptural form in a new way.
