Heartwalk: Heart-Shaped Art Installation Made Of Boardwalk Planks Salvaged After Hurricane Sandy

Heartwalk is a new heart-shaped public art installation made of boardwalk planks salvaged after Hurricane Sandy. The LED-laced pavilion installed in Duffy Square (in the heart of Times Square) was conceptualized and designed by Brooklyn-based design firm Situ Studio, winner of this year’s annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design. The artwork was inspired by the “collective experience of Hurricane Sandy and the love that binds people together during trying times.” Each year, the Times Square Alliance invites architecture and design firms to submit proposals for a romantic public art installation celebrating Valentine’s Day in Times Square. Heartwalk was unveiled yesterday, and will remain on view until March 10, 2013.
