Frisco Artists, Help Design the Newest Frisco Heart
The Heart Project is a creative contest highlighting the beloved iHeartFrisco heart installations that dot the city, from City Hall to The Rail District, and beyond. We're inviting local artists to let their creativity shine by submitting their own designs for a new heart installation. See contest rules, design requirements, and judging criteria below. Contest is open September 27 through October 18, 2023 at 5 p.m.
This contest is now closed and the winner has been notified and will be announced at the Grand Gallery in the Discovery Center on November 1st at 7:45pm. The heart will be installed in the coming months!
Contest Theme: Art & Discovery
This heart will be installed at the Frisco Discovery Center, adjacent to the Frisco Public Library. The theme of this heart design is art and discovery, so the design should reflect Frisco's artistic personality or the innovation and inspiration you can find within the Discovery Center through art, science, history, and imagination!
The size of the heart is 5 feet wide x 90 inches high, with a heart-shaped center cutout.
Design Setup and Orientation
