"Hearts in San Francisco was a Bay Area-wide art installation that debuted in the spring of 2004. A heart was used for the San Francisco program, appropriate for a city that is recognized for its acceptance and tolerance. The primary goals of this project were to raise funds and nurture artistic expression at a time when both are sorely needed. The financial beneficiary of Hearts in San Francisco is the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation which has now received over five million dollars from sales of the heart sculptures. The striped version was designed and presented to Intel, and the gold coin version was created for Wells Fargo, both major funders of the installation. Michael Osborne designed the Heart sculpture designs, the logo and banner."
