“Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.” —Chuck Klosterman, American author and essayist

The Hearts for Art project began in 2013 at the Oakland Museum of California and Columbus Museum of Art. Join us and other museums across the country to spread the love with Hearts for Art.

From February 10 to 15, you’re invited to show your love by placing a paper heart on the floor in front of your artwork crush.

  1. Pick up a single heart and hold it close until you’ve met your match.
  2. Fall in love with an artwork and make it official by placing your heart on the floor in front of the artwork you love.
  3. Snap a photo of your heart placed next to your artwork crush, and post it to your favorite social media site, tagged with #heartsforart and @ashevilleartmuseum.
