20% of the Where the Heart Is exhibit proceeds benefit Chautauqua County Habitat for Humanity, building self-reliance through affordable home ownership.

A Best in Show (cash prize) and Awards of Distinction will be awarded to the works of highest artistic merit based on technical skill, creativity, innovation, and adherence to theme. An Artists’ Choice and People’s Choice award will be selected based on popular vote.

STCEA provides a safe space for you to build creative confidence. Have your work evaluated through a competitive juried show process that is welcoming to art students, new and emerging artists, and seasoned artists alike. Having your work displayed in an international juried show is a great way to boost your artistic presence, increase sales, and build your exhibition portfolio for future show opportunities, gallery representation, or entrance to MFA programs – or just for fun and personal growth. Online exhibits are good for the environment and your pocketbook – you save shipping fees and artwork preparation costs as your work is professionally displayed in an online gallery with shareable links for your website and social media feeds. Plus, direct viewers to your online shop, where you’ll keep 100% of the proceeds for any artwork sold.

Deadline: 1 Aug 2019

On February 13, 2020, the hearts will be auctioned at the annual Hearts in San Francisco event. Proceeds benefit life-enhancing programs and initiatives at Zuckerberg San Francisco General, the Heart of our City. Artwork and proceeds (2004–2019) have raised more than $22 million for the Foundation and nationally recognized programs to enhance the quality of patient care in the areas of women and children’s health, chronic disease management, palliative care, HIV/AIDS, orthopedics, trauma and more.

Hearts in San Francisco is one of the most widely recognized public art projects in the country. Since the project’s inception in 2004, San Francisco Bay Area artists have created more than 350 Hearts. They have gone on display all across the city of San Francisco and beyond, from Union Square to the lobbies or conference rooms of corporate supporters throughout the state, including Genentech and Wells Fargo.

Each Heart is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art and celebrates the diversity of San Francisco through designs made of acrylic paints, mosaic art, mixed media sculptures, and Swarovski crystals. Artists have the option to propose a design for either a large heart (5′ tall x 6’ wide x 40″ deep; 400 pounds), table top heart (16″ tall x 17″ wide x 8″ deep; 25 pounds), or mini heart (7″ tall x 6″ wide x 2″ deep; 5 pounds). Select Large Hearts will have the opportunity to be displayed in San Francisco’s Union Square from February 2020 through to October 2020.

Heart sculpture artist selection is conducted by a committee comprised of San Francisco General Hospital Foundation staff, board members, and community volunteers. Selection notifications will be sent via email the week of August 26, 2019.
