House Tremont Galley is pleased to announce our next happening and Second Annual “HEARTS UNITED: ONE BILLION RISING”, a participatory and temporary public art display of hearts on the fence surrounding HTG.

This project is part of the global observance of One Billion Rising’s Revolution (http://www.onebillionrising.org/about/campaign/) a movement to draw attention to the need to END THE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN launched in 2012 and held on Valentine’s Day.

You, your school group, or your organization are invited to participate by creating temporary heart-shaped or heart-themed art out of fabric, cardboard, or whatever you like, to be tied or wired to and displayed on the fence surrounding House Tremont Gallery – your “Heart-Work” will be united with other “Heart-works” to create a temporary wall of public art!

HEARTS UNITED IS TWO CITIES STRONG! IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE IN COLUMBUS, BRING YOUR HEART ART TO SECOND SIGHT STUDIO. For details on the Columbus installation contact founder of HEARTS UNITED, Mona Gazala, at mona.gazala@gmail.com



Where: House Tremont Gallery Fence, 2338 Scranton Rd, Cleveland, Ohio 44113 (Corner of Willey and Scranton Avenue).

Why: to bring a temporary community of people together to commemorate One Billion Rising’s “V-Day” and enjoy art in a non-traditional space.

How: Any interested participants are invited to create heart-shaped or heart-themed hearts on cardboard, cloth, plastic, etc, and bring it House Tremont Gallery to be hung and displayed along the wooden and chain-link fence surrounding the gallery. Viewers can stroll the fences of hearts and enjoy the art. Refreshments will be served at the gallery.

DETAILS on creating your hearts: Make your heart out of cardboard, cloth, plastic or any material that can be hung or wired to the fences and can be easily removed afterwards.

Keep in mind winter winds can be harsh, so try to make sure your art will be secure and not blow away!

Please keep the art family friendly.  We want our neighbors to love it too!

Installing your work: Bring your work to House Tremont 5 to 10pm Friday, February 12. (If you cannot be present the night of the event, you can hang the day after.) Please be sure to bring along wire, string, scissors, or whatever you will need to hang and attach the art to the fence.

Pick-up of work: Take-down begins at 1pm on Sunday, February 14th. If you would like your artwork back, please return after 1pm Sunday to retrieve it. Anything not picked up will be stored at the gallery for 7 days and then be discarded.

Note: Try not to bring any art that is too precious to you. While we will do our best to maintain the artwork during the event, weather, theft or vandalism can and sometimes do happen.
