Kansas City Parade of Hearts
We want to say “Thank You” to every artist who entered Parade of Hearts. We were simply blown away when we ended up with 700 design entries. And we were not only excited by the number of entries but by the talent that was showcased, as well. Those designs then went to the Independent Jury and Selection Panel. It was their very difficult job to make the final selection of artists and heart designs. Ultimately, the Jury Panel selected 123 artists who will be designing 154 hearts. Those names are below. The artists selected represent a diverse group — in geography, culture, ethnicity, age and gender. We will unveil the hearts designs and the locations where they will be placed soon.
