hearts: from mari

29 Sep

Today we did our first big public interactive event and it was great. It was an excellent example of community, friendship, and love. We also appreciated the generous donations of many of the folks who participated – we are well on our way to having gas money to make a trip up to Olympia and Seattle in October with Love is a Radical Act (details coming soon)!

Early on, Mari took one heart and quickly went a couple of blocks down, hung it at a bank, took photos, and came back and showed me. I asked her to send them to me and she was kind enough to do so.

She also took another heart and ended up hanging it further into downtown – I love that she managed to get it hanging on a blank wall.

Thanks everyone! There will be photos of the actual event posted soon. In the meantime, we look forward to the next installation event at Love Art gallery.

makin’ hearts

21 Sep

Between this past week’s (he)art bombings and the upcoming installation events, we really have our work cut out for us.

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*

(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.

peace and justice fair recap

As I said before, we were very excited to talk to all of the lovely folks who came to the Peace and Justice Fair last Saturday.

So many delightful families and friends. My favorite part was one person who said, “Love is a radical act,” and I knew he got it.

buy some art: ceramic plaques

11 Sep

Kelly has started making some cute ceramic plaques celebrating couples and marriage equality. We sold one at the beginning of August to a nice lady from a small town in Idaho who said she was buying it for her son and his partner. How sweet.

Each plaque is handmade, white clay with a red stain, and has a wire hanger.
