My Heart in San Francisco

Suzanne Baxter

Born in Wichita, Kansas, Suzanne Baxter now resides in San Francisco and has been for the last 22 years. The City has inspired and liberated her to embrace her creative self, and there is nowhere she would rather be than San Francisco. Suzanne has a varied academic background in Graphic Design, Finance, and Economics. She has had a lifelong relationship with both numbers and visual art, leading her to create beautiful abstract paintings that she describes as a meeting of the minds, where the left and right sides of the brain find common ground. Suzanne has painted murals in Los Angeles and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area in spaces such as Gap’s global headquarters in San Francisco, Old Navy’s global headquarters in Mission Bay, Marin Country Mart, Union Square, and Ciel Creative Space in Berkeley.

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.
