#Followmyheart from #AHeartForArt event

#Followmyheart  from #AHeartForArt event on June 7th was a great success! We had almost 300 people stop by to create hearts, and now the #followmyheart campaign is officially on display in various locations to support ARCK's mission and advocate for more arts education in Boston Public Schools. Stop by Panificio Bistro and Bakery on Charles Street, the Dunkin Donuts on Boylston Street, Haley House in Dudley Square in Roxbury, and Ben & Jerry's on Newbury Street to see whose hearts made it and help support our cause! A couple of hearts even made it into Ms. Ruhling's 2nd grade classroom at Josiah Quincy Elementary School in Chinatown! Here are a few photos of the hearts on display:

June 19th has been celebrated as African American Emancipation Day since its origins in Galveston, Texas in 1865, and has since spread across the country.
