This Valentine’s weekend, share your love for art with #HeartsForArt!

Kicking off during Friday Nights @ OMCA and going through the Lunar New Year Celebration on February 12, you can crush hard on your favorite work of art.

Here's what to do:

Step 1: Pick up a paper heart from the basket in OMCA’s Gallery of California Art. Hold it close and feel the love.

Step 2: Get giddy. Proclaim your love and make it official by placing your heart on the floor in front of a work of art you love.

Step 3: Snap a photo of your heart placed next to your artwork crush, and post it to your favorite social media site, using the hashtags #IHeartOMCA and #HeartsForArt. Don’t forget to give OMCA some love, and tag Oakland Museum of California (@oaklandmuseumca)​ in the post.

Feel the love! Share the love! Love some art!

The Hearts for Art project was created four years ago by OMCA and the Columbus Museum of Art. This year, other participating museums include: Columbus Museum of Art, Philbrook Museum of Art, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Denver Museum of Art, Dallas Museum of Art, Crystal Bridges Museum of Art, The Walters Art Museum, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and Parrish Art Museum.
