Village Inspiration & Design Award

Village Inspiration & Design Award (VIDA)

The purpose of the VIDA is to highlight the unique and creative contributions made to our village, and to foster connections, pride, and a sense of community. We believe that art and culture are critical as we continue to build a village that provides a good quality of life, fuels creativity and innovation, and attracts people who will continue to expand the creative vision and profound thought in which this community is rooted.

The Public Art and Culture Commission on behalf of the Village of Yellow Springs presents the VIDA to a resident or local business owner who creatively enhances the overall culture of Yellow Springs and makes a transformational artistic contribution to the Village. The goal is to recognize inspirational art in its many forms that enrich our community.

A sculpture designed by local artist Jon Hudson and sponsored by Sue & Bob Swaney has been created to celebrate this award.  A certificate will be awarded to the recipient(s). The VIDA logo was created by local artist Xeno Dewey.
