Rome Community HeART Project

The Rome Area Council for the Arts (RACA) & Redmond Regional Medical Center are teaming up again for the 4th annual Rome Community HeART Project! During the month of February, downtown Rome will exhibit larger-than-life “HeARTs” in celebration of National Heart Month. We are bringing back 14 impressive concrete HeARTs along with 4 HeART garlands --- for a total of 18 different opportunities for local artists, art classes and groups to showcase their talent throughout Downtown Rome. This month-long public art experience celebrates the local artists and organizations that bring creativity to our city while also raising heart health awareness.
