Do you have a work of art that transfixes you?
Join Columbus Museum of Art and museums and galleries across the world in celebrating Valentine’s Day with #HeartsforArt, February 11-16, 2020. Launched by Columbus Museum of Art (CMA) and Oakland Museum of California in 2014, Hearts for Art is a fun way for visitors to express their love for art.
Here’s how Hearts for Art works:
• Online: Share your art crush by posting a picture of your favorite work of art across your favorite social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) using hashtag #HeartsForArt, and tag @columbusmuseum (and/or the museum or gallery where your favorite work is from).
• And/or in the Columbus Museums Art or Pizzuti Collection of CMA galleries: Pick up a paper heart at the admission desk and place it in front of a work of art that you love and share using #HeartsForArt, and tag @columbusmuseum across your favorite social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook).
Be sure to check out the #HeartsForArt hashtag. Here’s a gallery of some of the photos posted so far.
