The Great HeARTventure

Example of fiberglass heart. 

What is it?

This new project is an exciting fundraiser initiative for the Heart O' Texas Fair & Rodeo Scholarship Fund. Thirty 4-foot fiberglass hearts will be sold to local businesses, philanthropists and others in the community who would like to support the initiative. Area artists, art groups and school art classes will be invited to submit designs for consideration to decorate one of the 30 hearts. The hearts will be assigned to and decorated by selected artists and then put on display at the 2019 Heart O' Texas Fair & Rodeo. All hearts will have a plaque listing the sponsor and the artist. After the 2019 Fair, sponsors can collect their heart to display at their place of business or donate to local libraries, schools or other places around the community.
