i was asked to contribute a piece to this year’s heartwork art project. here’s what it’s all about:
Heartwork is a project designed to raise money for art supplies within the art room at Target House—this wonderful home-away-from-home for the families of children facing long-term treatment at St. Jude® Children’s Research Hospital.
The whole idea started simply enough. We, along with a few other creative individuals, were asked to work on various design projects for the St. Jude Target House. But, in the process, we were so deeply moved by the experience that we didn’t want it to end. We witnessed firsthand the special connection the kids had with the art room in particular. It was a place where we saw kids at all stages of health just being kids. So, we began to wonder, “What if we could create a ongoing way to support more and better art supplies for these children?” It was then that Heartwork was born.
The idea is simple. Every year, a group of talented artists create a series of 11″ x 14″ giclee prints to raise money for the art room. Each of the prints feature an interpretation of the word “Hope” and each edition is limited to only 10 pieces and signed/numbered by the artist.
pretty cool stuff, right? i’m honored to be part of this amazing project.
