6. Communal Effort
7. Civic Responsibility
8. Leave No Trace
9. Participation
10. Immediacy



This piece, titled Awakening, was conceived by artists Ryan Elmendorf and Nick Geurts.

This interactive steel sculpture of a human head and two emerging hands invites participants to enter inside, where a control room awaits and the ability to see what the outside world looks like, through the giant’s eyes.

This pyramid of canopy colors was created using LED lights to emit a celestial, playful ambiance that welcomes all visitors with its comforting, organic essence.
