Leave Your Heart in San Francisco

Hearts in San Francisco Project

Since its inception in 2004, the Hearts in San Francisco project has been a cornerstone of philanthropy, rallying local artists to support Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. Today, this tradition endures, marking over 20 years of profound impact on our city’s public hospital.

Hearts in San Francisco has become more than just an art project—it’s a symbol of support for the people of San Francisco. New hearts are unveiled each year, capturing the community’s creativity while raising vital funds that support innovative and equitable care at ZSFG.

      Brayer calls herself a dream weaver.  Her process begins at rest, and takes its purest form there.  As an assemblage artist, the deliberate exit from outside interference and into her own artistic headspace allows her to dance in the abstract and to release the confines of her reality.

      As she creates, she emphasizes initially on the object and its architecture…the concept is secondary.  Imperfection has always stroked her artistic sensibilities.  Brayer approaches each piece of work knowing that just below the surface, the image of her artistic narrative waits.

      Every one of a kind piece embodies a specific destination, resulting in a representation that captures a significant moment in time.
