S.F. General announces 2008 Hearts in San Francisco artists

Seventeen artists are participating in 2008 Hearts in San Francisco, a public art event benefiting the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation.

The art hearts were first introduced in The City at Union Square on Valentine’s Day 2004. This year, 17 hearts will go on display in Union Square on Feb. 1. Twelve small 14-inch “tabletop” hearts will be auctioned at the third Heroes & Hearts Luncheon Feb. 14, with proceeds benefiting the foundation, while five large 5-foot hearts will remain on display in Union Square through October.

The 2008 large heart artists are Rob Cox, Debra Nichols, Precita Eyes Muralists, Lewis Sykes and Amanda Williams. Artists creating small hearts include Doug Anderson, Gary Bukovnik, Andre de Baubigny, Betty Guy, Denise Laws, Dr. Jay A. Levy, Hung Liu, Michael Knud Ross, George Russell, Adele Shaw, Daniel Tousignant and Omar Vizquel.

“We are honored to have these 17 artists participate in Heroes & Hearts 2008 and to share their exceptional talent with the city of San Francisco,” San Francisco General Hospital Foundation Executive Director Katherine Ripley-Williams said when the artists were announced earlier this month. “From a San Francisco Giant to the doctor who co-discovered HIV; these diverse artists all share one common goal, to raise money and awareness for the General and the foundation.”
