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.

Meet the Artist:

Pop Zhao is one of the most accomplished artists to emerge from China in recent years. For the past fifteen years, he has lived in San Francisco.


Since 1986, Zhao has extended his art to what he calls “Concept 21” multi-media theatrical performances, depicting the complexity and beauty of the human condition, which were viewed as controversial. He continued his trend setting with performances at the Great Wall and Ming Tombs in later years. In the United States, Zhao has exhibited at the San Bernardino County Museum, Triton Museum of Art, California Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, P.S.1 Museum and other galleries in the United States. His work has been purchased by collectors from Finland to Malaysia and can be seen in museums throughout the world.
