Heartwork is a project designed to raise money for art supplies at Target House—this wonderful home-away-from-home for the families of children facing long-term treatment at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, located in Memphis, Tennessee.
Every year, a group of talented artists are selected to create a series of prints with a specified theme, this year being the word ‘HOPE’. Each edition is limited to only 10 pieces and signed/numbered by the artist.
Here’s a sample of the prints available in this year’s Heartwork benefit, available for purchase at the Heartwork website.
