photoblog image Hearts in San Francisco

Hearts in San Francisco

Hearts in San Francisco was a SF Bay Area-wide “heart installation” that debuted in the spring of 2004. While similar to Chicago’s “Cows on Parade,” the San Francisco version used a heart icon, appropriate for a city that is recognized for its acceptance and tolerance, as well as being perennially open-hearted. The goal of this project was to become a unique hybrid of fund-raising, compassionate community involvement, and a positive nurturing of artistic expression at a time when it is sorely needed.

The  Hearts were auctioned off to raise money for the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation. A few  Hearts were left in Place around San Francisco. There are still four in Union Square. The building the background is the The Westin St. Francis at Union Square.

I'm so glad you explained this picture because I had absolutely no idea what it was. It looks good smile
Como dice Ellie, no puedo explicar que es esto, pero me resulta muy agradable ver los contrastes de color. ! smile
