Heart Beats Art Charity Exhibition in Zurich
#HeartBeatsTour Switzerland at Zurich HB From 17th – 27th October & Rapperswil from 8th – 14th November 2021
If you’ve been to Bern recently you may have seen an exhibition of colourful hearts on the Bundesplatz. Those beautiful hearts were created for a charity called Heart Beats and the exhibition moved from Bern to Zurich and then to Rapperswil.
At Zurich Main Station they were located in the main hall where these beautiful pieces of art created a wonderful splash of colour. They were all created by Swiss artists and school children in aid of Swiss Solidarity Charity.
Claudia Knie & Carolina Caroli
The project was set up by Claudia Knie and Carolina Caroli’s to raise money to support young people in need. Each of the hearts is unique with a different colour, shape, size and pattern.
At the end of the Swiss Heart Beats Tour each of the hearts will be auctioned off and distributed by Swiss Solidarity. All money raised will go to providing help for young people, especially those who have suffered so much due to the pandemic.
There are just over 60 heart sculptures and each one is a unique work of art made out of synthetic resin. The auction will take place online, the proceeds will benefit young people who were victims of domestic violence during the Corona period or who had to experience the loss of their training position.
The project comes after the successful campaign to protect Asian Elephants, which took place in various locations in Switzerland about 18 month ago. The Elephant Sculpture exhibition was also located at Zurich Main Station and you can read about it here.
This time the project went from conception to completion in just 5 months with a lot of hard work. You can support the campaign by purchasing from a selection of “heart merchandise” which is on sale at the on-site shop. Alternatively you can make a donation via Swiss Solidarity online here.
The Heart Beats Tour exhibition is free of charge and open to all. It can be viewed from 8th – 14th November in the main square in in Rapperswil, Fischmarktplatz.
