Show Your Favorite Work of Art Some Love with Hearts for Art

Show Your Favorite Work of Art Some Love with Hearts for Art

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and the Denver Art Museum is ready! Join us and other museums across the country to spread the love with Hearts for Art. From February 10–February 15, you’re invited to show your love for a favorite work of art by placing a paper heart on the floor in front of your artwork crush.

Step 1: Pick up a single heart and hold it close until you’re ready...

Step 2: Fall in love with a piece of art and make it official by placing your heart ON THE FLOOR in front of a work of art you love.

Step 3: Snap a photo of your heart placed next to your artwork crush, and post it to your favorite social media site, tagged with #denverartmuseum and #heartsforart.

Please note: Not everything at the DAM is in the mood for love. Hearts and photography are permitted in all DAM galleries except Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century and works marked with a No Photography sign. Ask your friendly security officer if you are unsure.

Happy heart-ing!

Did you know? The Hearts for Art project was initiated three years ago by the Oakland Museum of California and Columbus Museum of Art. Last year, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Philbrook Museum of Art, and the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History all joined in.
