The Skyline Council of Landmarks Illinois, in partnership with Friends of Harley Clarke, hosted a “heart bombing” event at Harley Clarke on February 9, 2019.
WHAT IS HEART BOMBING?
“Heart bombing” is a public display of love to historic sites and local landmarks by showering the site with physical expressions of affection, such as paper hearts. It is an activation of a space that is often vacant or underutilized, giving a new perspective on its potential.
