“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched—they must be felt with the heart.” —Helen Keller (1880-1968)
Some sights, some things to see, in New York City come and go, creating a once–in-a-lifetime opportunity for visitors and locals alike. This wooden heart, presented to you to celebrate the Feast of St. Valentine, is one such example of ephemeral New York.
This site-specific work of art, from February 2013, is entitled Heartwalk. It is constructed of wooden planks that were taken from New York and New Jersey beach-community boardwalks that were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012.
