Hearts United for One Billion Rising, the 2nd annual “Hearts United” Public Art Project. Second Sight Studio will once again be facilitating a public art display that is open to anyone who would like to participate. Hearts United for One Billion Rising is a project in which individuals and collaborative groups create heart-shaped or heart-themed art to be displayed at the Bellows End schoolyard, just across the street from the studio. Everyone is invited to convene at the schoolyard from 11am to 2pm on Saturday, February 14 to hang their artwork on the fences, enjoy the work of others, and then warm up at the studio with coffee and donuts.
This project is part of the global observance of One Billion Rising’s “V-Day”, a movement to draw attention to the need to end violence against women. Last year, there were over 100 Columbus artist participants from elementary-school age all the way through adults. This year, “Hearts United” is two cities strong, with a concurrent happening at House Tremont, an alternative art space in Cleveland.
