San Francisco General Hospital Foundation at AT&T Park: Hearts in SF 2020
Comment by AB: Since its inception in 2004, the Hearts in San Francisco project has commissioned local artists to paint hundreds of sculptural hearts that have gone on to become part of the region's cultural landscape, many of which are on display at prominent Bay Area locations. The millions of dollars raised annually from auctioning these hearts off is used to assist disadvantaged and underserved area residents in need medical care at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hopsital.
Over the years, Hearts in SF has grown into one of the best, most visible, and enduring artist/organizational collaborations around. The highlight of each year is the Hearts in SF fundraiser held in a jumbo event tent set up in the center of the outfield at AT&T Park. The stars of the evening are the year's fresh new crop of artist hearts, shown publicly for the first time, and auctioned off (for very respectable prices) to the highest bidders. Special guests and presenters included Honorable Mayor Willie Brown, Mayor London Breed, SF Giants CEO Larry Baer, and more.
