Calling all artists with a heart – or at least those with the ability to design one. Parade of Hearts, a new community initiative, is inviting submissions of artistic renderings of the Kansas City heart for display at their forthcoming Parade of Hearts to be held from March to May 2022. This regional event will showcase local artists by selecting and placing 150-200 “beautiful, inspiring Heart Sculptures” throughout the KC region.
According to their website, anyone and everyone who considers him or herself an artist is invited to participate. “Parade of Hearts was not created ‘for’ the Kansas City region but ‘by’ and ‘with’ those people and organizations that are related to a community: students, parents, families, artists, partner organizations, schools, government agencies, beneficiaries, and more.” Those wanting to “share your heart with the heartland,” must apply by September 4, 2021.
