Still Time to Enjoy Hearts Around Hartz

Hearts Around Hartz Exhibition Available to View
New exhibit has 17 heart sculptures in the downtown area


The latest public art exhibit in the Town of Danville is now complete.  All 17 hearts sculptures of the Hearts Around Hartz exhibition are now on display downtown. The outdoor exhibition will be on view through mid-October for all to enjoy. To see all of the locations, there is a downloadable map available on the Town’s website at www.danville.ca.gov/heartsaroundhartz.  Download the map and take a self-guided walking tour.


Starting August 4, 2020 the Town can download a scavenger hunt on the Hearts Around Hartz webpage that will allow for a fun way to see all of the hearts. Complete the scavenger hunt, fill out the bottom portion of the map with your contact information and be entered into a drawing for a chance to win raffle prizes each week for the duration of the art exhibition.


The heart sculptures are approximately four feet by four feet and each one is completely unique, painted or mosaicked by a different Bay Area artist. Heart art imagery ranges from landscape to floral to abstract to traditional to themes that are playful. With an array of styles, colors and subject matter represented, this outdoor exhibition is sure to make all hearts beat a little faster.


Most of the hearts have been sponsored, but for those interested, there is one left to sponsor. To sponsor the remaining heart, contact Cultural Arts and Marketing Supervisor Jessica Wallner at jwallner@danville.ca.gov.


The outdoor exhibition closes in mid-October with an online auction from October 15-October 20, 2020. Come downtown, check out the hearts, then bid to take it home during the auction.  All proceeds from the online auction will go back to the Town’s public art fund and used to create future public art exhibitions.


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