Harrisburg Heart Bomb 2017: Spread the Love for Historic Places
What are heart bombs? They are love letters to historic places that appear at historic sites nationwide, on local landmarks, and around places both safe and threatened. And now that February is soon upon us, we're once again inviting you to join our movement of love and take part in a national heart bomb.
Unfamiliar with the concept? It's simple, really. Heart bombing is the act of showering an older or historic place with tangible expressions of affection and devotion—preferably with lots of other place-lovers in tow.
Your reasons for participating might vary. Maybe you dig a particular building, or your town, or your community's greater history. Maybe you love bringing people together around a good cause. Or maybe you just love glitter.
We will provide materials including paper, markers and scissors Feel free to bring your own supplies (keep the glitter under control!)
After about an hour of crafting our love-grams we will depart for our destinations for a photo shoot!
In light of Historic Harrisburg Association's 2017 Preservation priorities, and due to the possible sale of the property, we will be inviting Citizens for the Future of Harrisburg State Hospital to show their love!
