Danville downtown now displaying public art exhibit

'Hearts Around Hartz' exhibit open until October

There are 17 sculptures of hearts now adorning downtown Danville. Comprising the "Hearts Around Hartz" public art exhibition, these pieces will be up until mid-October.

Each sculpture, nearly 4 feet tall, has its own unique painting or mosaic created by a different Bay Area artist. "Heart art imagery ranges from landscape to floral to abstract to traditional to themes that are playful," Danville town officials said in a statement.

Visitors can download a map with the locations of all 17 sculptures here, along with details on how to participate in the associated scavenger hunt. Participants in the scavenger hunt will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win prizes every week throughout the duration of the art exhibit.

From Oct. 15-20, there will be an online auction for members of the community to bid on each heart sculpture to take home.
