GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — Valentine’s Day may be over, but Grand Rapids is looking more loved-up than ever.

On Tuesday, Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. announced the installation of its newest World of Winter exhibit: Have a Heart.

The exhibit consists of 12 colorful, 4-foot by six-foot heart-shaped artworks created by 14 local artists. Each heart showcases one local nonprofit organization, many of which have been struggling amid COVID-19. At each installation, viewers are invited to scan QR codes to make financial donations to help support the organizations.

Locations with heart-shaped art installations include:

  • 5 hearts located in the middle of the Uccello's and Cinco de Mayo social zone on Monroe Center.
  • 2 hearts located in Rosa Parks Circle.
  • 5 hearts located at the Grand Rapids Public Museum at 272 Pearl Street NW.
