happy new year!

happy-new-year

Wow, can you believe it’s a new year? Looking back, so much has happened with Love is a Radical Act in such a short time. We’ve shared a lot on the blog – (he)art bombings, trips, photos from other folks, and our wedding – plus we’ve enjoyed a lot of smaller interactions such as emails from people who happened upon our hearts and looked us up or photos posted to our Facebook page. Just this week we had the pleasure of meeting up with someone who heard about us in a roundabout way from a friend and contacted us to buy some hearts to take to a wedding.

We look forward to doing even more in 2013. Of course, our biggest focus right now is planning our trip to San Francisco to (he)art bomb the Bay Area and many places along the way. Thanks to many kind and generous gifts from friends and family for our wedding, we have raised about $1500, leaving $1000 left to raise. If you would like to help, we appreciate donations of any size (see the Paypal button on the side bar and at the bottom of the page) or purchase some hearts or love-themed art. You can order some custom hearts for Valentine’s Day or a wedding. Have other ideas? Just ask!

We are also interested in applying for grants – both art grants as well as grants that would pay for us to do some educational work. We are both art educators and would love to have the opportunity to use Love is a Radical Act as a way to teach about various topics: ceramics, installation art, conceptual art, families/relationships, etc. If you have any ideas or leads for us, drop us an email. If you would like us to lead an art activity with your class/youth group/group of any size or age, please contact us.

Finally, we are delighted to announce that you can now follow our blog on Kindle if that’s the kind of thing you like to do.

Of course, we will still be (he)art bombing in Vancouver and Portland and blogging about it. We hope to hear from all of you and share your photos, words, and more on this blog.

Thanks for being part of Love is a Radical Act!

we’re getting married!

I know we’ve been pretty quiet lately, but we’ve been extra busy with many things, the biggest one being our wedding! We had already decided to get married on the first day it was legal if marriage equality passed in Washington, so once we found out it was a done deal, we only had about a month to plan.

We did a couple of small (he)art bombings in November, one at a private residence and one at a book reading. The project has been on the back burner a little, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t thinking about it every day.

We read about a mass wedding on December 15 in the state capitol building, and we are seriously considering driving up to Olympia to pass out hearts to all of the newlyweds and to give the city a fresh (he)art bombing. We’ll let everyone know if and when we decide that we are definitely going.

The biggest plans we have in the works is a trip down to San Francisco to (he)art bomb the bay area. We are so committed to this trip happening that the only wedding present we are asking for is contributions to our travel fund. We really hope we can meet our goal in a couple of months. If you can donate any amount, large or small, or help us spread the word, we would be very grateful.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us.
