The heARTs of Rutland! community street art project announces
its Unveiling Celebration on Sunday, June 10 at 12-noon following
the Crowley Road Race. This exciting event will be held in front of
the Court House on Merchants Row in Downtown Rutland, Vermont. 30
hearts painted by local artists will be showcased. There will be a
performance by Drum Journeys of Earth.
The heARTs of Rutland! street art project celebrates our
people and pride in everything the region has to offer, and how our
people, businesses and community come together showing heart in so
many ways. A series of talented local artists have just finished
painting the 30 hearts that will be showcased at the Unveiling
Celebration. These 4 foot fiberglass hearts will celebrate the
creativity of our local arts community, and create a sense of
excitement and vibrancy within our region, welcoming people to
visit and explore what we have to offer. After the unveiling, the
hearts will be on display in Rutland and around the region until
our November 2 Live Auction.
This project is for the benefit of Rutland and the region with
profits distributed to victims of disaster in the Rutland Region
and children's art education. Omya is the presenting sponsor. The
heARTs of Rutland! is a community partnership organized under the
Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Southern Vermont with
support from the Downtown Rutland Partnership, Rutland Region
Chamber of Commerce, Rutland Economic Development Corp.
