Heart around the Park

The Hearts of the World project made a stop yesterday afternoon in Tompkins Square Park…

First, here's more about the Project:

Hearts of the World allows children, many from devastated areas, to explore their inner worlds, their passion, their fears and their unique potential. Since 2010, Hearts of the World has fostered self-expression through painting workshops in ten countries. Started at the Lower East Side Girls Club, by its founder, NYC-based artist Nicolina, the HOTW team has partnered with schools, social service agencies and arts organizations to create life-altering workshops.

And a few scenes from the afternoon, where people were invited to paint what was in their hearts…
