hearts: from maria

18 Sep

Local artist Maria bought some hearts to (he)art bomb the home of a special family: Ian, Jessie, Harry, and Rosemary. Unfortunately, Harry had to spend his sixth birthday this past weekend in the hospital because he has been recovering from being hit by a car. While the past couple of months have been hard and sometimes scary for Harry and his family, there has been an enormous outpouring of love and generosity from the community to support these kind folks.

Happy birthday, Harry! You are lucky to be loved by so many people.

mini (he)art bomb: uptown mural

18 Sep

Okay, maybe one heart does not a bombing make, but we’ll overlook that. Kelly wanted to combine Love is a Radical Act with a very special mural that a bunch of community members painted this summer as an act of love for one particular community member. This is a great example of love outside of the traditional family unit – love as a means of building strong community where everyone can depend on each other for help. Call it what you will, it’s a beautiful thing.

Note: the heart has already migrated to somewhere else, which is all part of the vision for this project. We hope to hear where it ended up.

(he)art bombing: mint tea

18 Sep

On Saturday afternoon we visited Mint Tea to (he)art bomb their lovely building. We knew the hearts would go great with the vibe of the business.

lots of hearts in the tree out front

we’re hoping some of these hearts will migrate to other locations *hint hint*

a little love looks great on the fencing made by Cobalt Designworks

 

a belated thank you

17 Sep

Thanks to a couple of generous friends, last Monday we glazed 193 hearts. And let me tell you how much more I appreciate them now, because in the past week we’ve gone through all but maybe a couple dozen of those hearts. Time to get more cut because we have installation events coming up soon. Thanks, friends!
