All sponsors will be invited to a special opening reception set to be held at the Village Theatre and Art Gallery in downtown Danville on June 4 from 6-8 p.m. Where heart sculptures will be on display before they are installed at their various locations along Hartz Avenue.

At summer’s end, 14 of the heart sculptures will be sold in a silent auction during a closing reception, with the remaining sculpture to be retained by the town for future display. The closing reception will be held Sept. 17, from 6-8 p.m., also at the Village Theatre.
