The SF General Hospital Foundation has revealed the 2020 series today. There are a total of 34 new artworks by 39 SF Bay Area artists. Each heart will be displayed and auctioned at The Foundation’s Hearts in SF event on Thursday Feb 13th at Oracle Park. Some of the hearts will also be located at Union Square beginning in February.
Hearts in San Francisco is one of the most widely recognized public art projects in the country. Since the project’s inception in 2004, San Francisco Bay Area artists have created more than 350 Hearts that have gone on display all across the city of San Francisco and beyond.
All proceeds from the sale of the hearts go to benefit initiatives at the Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. So far the hearts have raised more than $27 million since it began in 2004.
