Public Art - Hearts around Hartz


Photo Montage of all the Hearts around Hartz

We hope you have enjoyed the HEARTS around HARTZ  this summer…

A heartfelt thanks to everyone who made the Hearts Around Hartz public art exhibition and auction a success!  



This summer, the Town of Danville invited its residents and visitors to discover 17 uniquely adorned heart sculptures placed all around downtown. The public art exhibition was installed mid-June and ran through October 16.

Each heart sculpture was unique, with each design created by a different Bay Area artist. Some of the hearts boasted a Danville theme with imagery ranging from oak trees to Mount Diablo others incorporated playful designs and motifs. 

All proceeds from the online auction will go to a public art fund so that the Town can coordinate another public art project for all to experience in the future.
