All sponsors will be invited to the Opening Reception at the Village Theatre Art Gallery on Thursday, June 4, 2020, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.  At the reception the heart sculptures will be on display before being distributed and installed at their summer sidewalk locations on Hartz Avenue. 

At the end of the exhibition, 14 of the heart sculptures will be sold in a silent auction during the Closing Reception for the Artists and Sponsors at the Village Theatre & Art Gallery.  One heart sculpture will be retained by the Town for future use and enjoyment.  The Closing Reception is scheduled for Thursday, September 17, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
