There wereâ¯plenty of winners at the 2020 Happy Hearts Art Project, a sidewalk chalkâ¯competition to create heart-themed ‘Thank Yous,’ held June 10 – 17 in the parking lot of the Marco Island Area Association of Realtors. This year’s theme was to say ‘Thank You’ to our health care workers, first responders and everyone who is keeping us fed.
MIAAOR and the Island Theatre Company teamed up to organize the event.
Participants used chalk and washable paint to create a heart themed ‘Thank You’ in the MIAAOR parking lot.
Persistent afternoon rains made the project more temporary than desired. In fact, the Island Theatre Company, who had several attempts at sidewalk art quickly washed away, has decided to run the event again after the rainy season.
BioSweep Suncoast, Regions Mortgage and Island Title 5 Star Closing Team, New American Funding and Responsiveâ¯Insurance were event sponsors.
The winners were Claudia Bruni, Island Title, 5 Star Closing Team LLC, The Bartos Group, the Sandlin Team, Discovery Group of Naples, Regions Mortgage, and Ben Hebert, Kayla Charde and Jack Hebert.
