“I met a lot of buyers, interested gallery owners and public art representatives as well as brilliant fellow artists, and the very juicy cherry on top was that I sold 13 pieces over the 4 days! On top of that I also sold 2 more pieces after the fair had finished thanks to being on the Superfine website. It felt like I was part of a great family and I can’t wait for the next one!” – Valerie Auersperg, Superfine San Francisco Exhibitor
“I view my participation in this fair as planting seeds. Sure, I made art sales, but more importantly, I made connections with people that are going to help me grow my business over the next year.” – Joseph Shook, Superfine San Francisco Exhibitor

San Francisco General Hospital Foundation announces a call for artists for the annual Hearts in San Francisco public art project, which will be celebrating its 16th anniversary. For the 2020 series, the Foundation welcomes design submissions by local San Francisco Bay Area artists. The series will include ten large hearts, eight table top hearts, and fifteen mini heart sculptures.
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.
