hearts in san francisco 2023 (1)

* The Hearts in San Francisco 2023 application is now closed. *




Under the leadership of Nancy Bechtle and Ellen Magnin Newman, 131 beautiful and inspired Heart Sculptures were created by local artists. The project generated a new level of exposure for the Foundation’s mission, as well as the Zuckerberg San Francisco General’s vital role in our community. Each year, a limited series of Heart Sculptures is created by San Francisco Bay Area artists and showcased at the Foundation’s annual February Hearts in SF event. These one-of-a-kind Heart Sculptures are auctioned to raise critical funds for the Foundation.


The Foundation is proud to announce the call for artists to create the 2023 Heart Sculptures. Each Heart not only captures a moment in time but is also a way for art to truly save lives.


Invest in a healthier San Francisco and submit your design for the 2023 series.
