> DESCRIPTION

Hearts    a fundraiser for the Love Yourself Project

Origami Heart Making  February 11  Saturday 1-5 pm

The Heart is known as the center of one’s emotions and thoughts of love. Today, we use the heart as a symbol to represent “Self-love”. 

The artists in this exhibition come together to invoke and share one thing in common : the love of self. Self love is the willingness and openness to look within and appreciate who we are right now.  The artists included in “Hearts” stand out in their desire to understand themselves and their efforts to inspire self-knowledge and self-preservation. 

In reaction to the pursuit of love deemed necessary in today’s society where the self gains worth through the eyes of others, the Love Yourself Project and this exhibition are influenced by the role of self-love as an initial necessity for the generation of all kinds of love. The familiar shape of the heart, hence, becomes a symbol of individuals celebrating themselves. Knowing and loving oneself is celebrated as the first step in understanding and loving others.

The Love Yourself Project was created to spread a message of unconditional self-love, and through education and visual arts, we aim to celebrate and empower communities around the world.
