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.

Northern California artist Skye Becker-Yamakawa was born in Redwood City, California in 1974. She grew up happily surrounded by a wealth of inspiration as a child, taking pleasure in classic cartoons, crayons, comic books, nature, and fashion magazines.


She has been painting full-time for over 20 years, exploring many different genres of art and traveling to Europe to study the masters. Many of Skye’s works are celebrated in art leagues and associations around the Bay Area. She has been featured on the covers of southern California entertainment magazines and shown in the Los Gatos Art Museum. Recently, Skye completed a mini mural for the City of Sunnyvale, painting a utility box for the Great Box Cover-Up.
