Art for the Heart
Art for the Heart is a collaborative project focused on connecting communities significantly affected by the pandemic through art. Over 850 art prints will be delivered to seniors in our community through the Mayor's office Great Plates Delivered program. Seven participating artists created unique prints exploring ideas of food and community that will be given to seniors with their meal deliveries this holiday season. Art for the Heart was organized by the Crocker Art Museum, University Galleries, Sacramento State, the Sacramento Promise Zone, and the Mayor's Office. Significant funding was provided through the City of Sacramento's Office of Arts and Culture. View all the artworks in our on-line exhibition.
