ArtPrize 2011

The evolving Heart Locker is based upon the European custom where sweethearts attach padlocks to a public fixture,
symbolizing their love by throwing away the keys and remaining linked together, happily ever-after.

All about healing the heart, this is an interactive sculpture where recollections are proclaimed with padlocks on an iron substrate.
Individual histories are not considered a nuisance here, but rather an exciting memorial,
symbolically connecting contributing hearts of today to a comforting memorial of tomorrow.

From humble country beginnings to a big City Art Gallery venue,
the invitation is open for everyone to participate in this evolving work of the community, for the community.
Lock up a memory and thank you for being part of the magic!

I recognize the handwriting!

Aww, thanks mom and dad, not only for all your support but also for giving me a firm foundation.

Proud to be up front and personal

City Art Gallery is at 1168 Ionia, easy access with shuttle routes nearby
