Aug. 25, 2012 - PRLog -- Artist and author Petra Eiko and the-green-heart have been invited to exhibit at The Broad Stage’s Labor Day weekend event Broad Fest.  Eiko’s “What is in your heart?–The world is listening” interactive public art project is welcoming event attendees to express their hearts.  The-green-heart will be on display Saturday, September 1 from 11am–10pm and Sunday, September 2 from 7pm–10pm.

“What is in your heart?–The world is listening” is a large-scale community driven art project that has been displayed throughout California with thousands of participants.  Community members are invited to express their hearts anonymously on paper and post their creations on Eiko’s art installation.  The exhibition has also been scaled down to a travel-sized version and has run in ten Los Angeles high schools over the span of two years.  An exhibition of the student’s work with the-green-heart is scheduled to be on display in October 2012 at the Los Angeles City Hall Bridge Gallery.  

The purpose of the-green-heart project is to inspire and share positive ideas, thoughts and widen the human circle through public art.  It was conceived as a platform to increase peace, one step at a time.  It encourages understanding, hope and harmony between individuals and nations.

The installation: “What is in your heart?–The world is listening” came to fruition after a trip Eiko took to Dubai.  She met a woman who asked what the “Western” definition of Love was.  In order to better answer her question, Eiko recognized that love begins in the heart and cannot be defined without understanding the heart itself.  She transformed a single question “What is in your heart?” into an interactive public art project that unites people and brings communities together.  Their participation confirms that we are not alone with our thoughts, dreams, and challenges.  The-green-heart project generates a feeling of connectedness that is extremely precious throughout the world today.
By truly expressing our hearts on Eiko’s art wall, these messages become part of the actual art piece, generating more understanding.

All these unique expressions are beautifully shown in special albums on www.the-green-heart.com and www.facebook.com/what.is.in.your.heart. Selections will be placed in future installations for the world to see.    

The Broad Stage is celebrating its fifth year in Santa Monica with Broad Fest—a free festival sharing artistry around the community.  In addition to Eiko’s “What is in your heart? – The world is listening” installation, the September 1 event will feature music, dance, food, art and ocean breezes.  

The Broad Stage is located at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center: 1310 11th St, Santa Monica, CA 90401 • (310) 434-3200 • info@thebroadstage.com.
