Hearts in San Francisco Project

The Hearts in San Francisco project debuted in 2004 with 131 heart sculptures, created by local Bay Area artists and auctioned by the Foundation in support of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.

The Foundation raised nearly 3 million dollars for ZSFG in that first year. Today, we carry on this tradition by commissioning and auctioning a new set of hearts each year. The funds raised support those delivering on the promise of accessible and equitable health care for all in our city.

Deirdre Weinberg has lived and worked in San Francisco for 30 years and her work can be seen throughout the city.


Her dynamic artistic practice ranges from quickly drawn mini portraits to large scale public murals but is grounded in a sensitivity to her environment and immediate community. “I have always recorded my reactions to the world around me, even if it’s not beautiful,” Weinberg says in her artist statement, “though I do seek to show beauty where it might be overlooked.”


This perspective makes Weinberg an ideal artist-in-residence at the Tenderloin Museum, one who can create at the intersection of the neighborhood’s long, storied history and its persisting themes of transition, perseverance, and compassion.
