Chinatown Mahjong

Rose Chan

Rose Chan is a first-generation Chinese American born and raised in San Francisco. She grew up in Chinatown and North Beach and was actually born at ZSFG in 1980. Her work is inspired by her childhood memories in San Francisco, a city that she loves very much. Rose studied illustration and 2D animation at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Most of her work consists of illustrations, acrylic paintings, ink, and watercolor.

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.
