Valentine’s Events in Rome to Bring Your Partner To

Posted January 24, 2018 by Nic Diaz in Arts, Downtown, Events

Rome Community HeART Project 

The Rome Area Council for the Arts (RACA) partnered with Redmond Regional Medical Center to bring a community art project to Rome for the month of February. Local concrete artist, Bill Thornton, created each sculpture (or HeART) as a hollow form covered with a skim of concrete. Using the medium of their choice, local artists have taken the HeARTs and truly created unique pieces of art, conveying a message of heart health awareness. See all the pieces next time you stroll Downtown throughout the month of February!
