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!

we’re on facebook

If you, like us, love the interwebs, you can now follow Love is a Radical Act on Facebook. We promise not to spam you all day long – it’ll just be an easy way to know when new blog posts happen and get the occasional reminder about upcoming events or a heads up about a spontaneous (he)art bombing.

(he)art bombing – grand central station

16 Sep

Kelly and I decided to take matters into our own hands and do some (he)art bombings around town while we wait for our collaborative installation events to happen at the end of the month. On Friday we went to the lovely courtyard on the southeast corner of Grand Central Station. We were delighted that our friend Anni came along to document the whole thing.
