2016 HEARTS IN SAN FRANCISCO

The City-wide public art project, Hearts in San Francisco was introduced in 2004, featuring 131 five-foot tall heart sculptures designed by local and national established and emerging artists. The unique works of art were featured in plazas, parks and on street corners throughout San Francisco. To conclude the public art display, hearts were auctioned and sold with proceeds benefiting San Francisco General Hospital Foundation and its efforts to fund innovative projects and initiatives that provide high quality compassionate care at Zuckerberg San Francisco General. Since the inaugural year, more than 100 Hearts have been created to benefit programs at Zuckerberg San Francisco General.
