In November, a new 1,000-pound heart sculpture will be installed in downtown Baltimore near the intersection of Charles and Hanover Streets.
Standing eight feet tall and six feet wide, the work brings to mind the famous “LOVE” statue in Philadelphia, according to Randi Pupkin, 58, founder and executive director of the nonprofit Art with a Heart. Pupkin’s staff, students and volunteers are creating the work in collaboration with the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore.
Titled “The Heart of Baltimore,” the three-dimensional sculpture will be covered in a mosaic of glass and mirror as well as ceramic hearts.
The massive project is “founded in the hope, resilience and ‘charm’ at the core of our great city,” Pupkin said.
