Description

Hearts in San Francisco is an annual public art installation started in 2004 by the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation for the purpose of fundraising. The project is inspired by the international CowParade exhibit, in which cow sculptures are painted by various artists and installed in various cities throughout the world. The choice of hearts is inspired by the Tony Bennett song "I Left My Heart in San Francisco."

Each year, uniform heart sculptures are painted by different artists and installed at locations throughout San Francisco, including Union Square. The heart sculptures are auctioned off at the end of each year's installation with the proceeds going to the foundation. Many of the previous years' sculptures are exhibited in various locations, including San Francisco City Hall, San Francisco General Hospital, AT&T Park (inside the Public House pub), the Lyon Street Steps, the Cartoon Art Museum, and several Wells Fargo branches.As of 2013, approximately $10 million had been raised for the foundation.
