Need a "Helping Hand" with grammar?

Need a "Helping Hand" with grammar?

So we have a new "Helping Hand" statue downtown:

I realize I am being nit-picky right away, but... does anyone else find it awkward that the fifth of the five words chosen doesn't grammatically match the other four?
Beauty, Nature, Family, Home, ... Diverse? Should that not be Diversity?
Noun, noun, noun, noun, adjective. It doesn't match so it doesn't sound right. I think it should be Diversity.
Was that just a mistake? I realize it's "art"... but weird. Just seems like grammar doesn't matter anymore :138:

Probably the same people who proof read the" welcome Vernon" signs instead of "Welcome to Vernon" couple few years back
If you can't handle the truth, plug your ears. Don't ask me to stop speaking. This is a no snowflake Zone
