[ARCHIVED] Hearts Around Hartz Comes Downtown

Go Downtown for Hearts Around Hartz
Summer art exhibit places heart sculptures downtown


This summer the Town of Danville’s got heart! Following up on last year’s very popular ‘Dogs of Danville’ public art exhibit, the Town is presenting ‘Hearts Around Hartz,’ a fantastic new exhibit featuring 17 uniquely adorned heart sculptures placed all around downtown.  The new public art exhibition will run through October 16, 2020.

The hearts in the exhibit are all different, each one done by a different Bay Area artist.  Some of the hearts boast a Danville theme with imagery ranging from oak trees to Mount Diablo to more playful designs and motifs. To learn more about the hearts and the artists, or to take part in sponsoring one of the pieces, go to www.danville.ca.gov/heartsaroundhartz.

When the exhibition closes, an online auction of the pieces will be held. The auction will be up for 10 days, allowing people to decide which heart they would like to bid on to take home and enjoy.  All proceeds from the online auction go toward a public art fund for future public art projects.

For more information, contact Visual Arts Coordinator Marija Nelson Bleier at (925) 314-3460 or mbleier@danville.ca.gov.
