The heart titled “Lake View” was created by artist Mary Giacomini and sponsored by Columbine Health Systems. It will be placed at 1365 W. 29th St. Loveland, Colorado.
Engaging the HeARTS: Long-awaited heart-art project unveiled in Loveland
After years of planning and months of work, the Loveland: City with HeArt’s completed sculptures were unveiled Friday at Civic Center Park.
The 5-foot-tall fiberglass hearts — which follow the lead of other cities’ sculpture projects such as Chicago’s Cows on Parade — were commissioned by local sponsors and decorated by local artists.
It was a project headed by Engaging Loveland, a not-for-profit group that also heads up SummerFest in the Rockies.
Soon the symbols of the Sweetheart City will be sprinkled around Loveland for public viewing and will remain on display through December.
In February, the hearts will be auctioned off, with proceeds supporting Engaging Loveland.
