> Tuesday, February 14, 2006: The Hearts Of San Francisco

(click the thumbnail above for a larger format)

A few years ago, San Francisco launched a fundraising project involving over a hundred artists who were asked to create heart-shaped sculptures. The sculptures were auctioned and two million dollars were raised. The first hearts were unveiled exactly two years ago, on Valentine's day of 2004. Today, you can still find a few of them in the city, displayed publically like on this photo, or sometimes even in some of the auction winners' front yards.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
