Three Lincoln City entities join forces this week to present a new community arts activity: the Happy Heart Hunt. These partners are inviting you to show your community spirit by making paper hearts, posting them in your street-side windows, and sharing photos online #togetherapart, throughout the month of May.
Are you low on art supplies? Come to the Lincoln City Cultural Center, 540 NE Hwy. 101, from 1 to 3 pm on Thursday, April 30. Visual arts director Krista Eddy and her volunteer assistants will be handing out Happy Heart Hunt art packets, as this week’s installment of the LCCC’s Creative Quarantine project. These supplies are a gift from the Kiwanis Club of Lincoln City, and are providing them with help from the third community partner, the Lincoln City Outlets.
If you can’t make it to the art kit distribution on Thursday, don’t worry. The LCCC will be posting a project sheet and a demonstration video online on the LCCC’s Facebook Page, @lincolncityculture. These materials will include instructions on how to make creative heart displays, and how to post photos of Happy Hearts so that you are eligible for the grand prize: a $100 gift card from the Lincoln City Outlets.
“We are proud to partner with the LCCC and Lincoln City Outlets to provide this Creative Quarantine activity,” said Kiwanis Club President Allyson Longueira. “Spread happy hearts throughout our community by making a window, door or outdoor display. Create a message for others to find while they are out on their neighborhood walks. Post pictures of your happy hearts on Facebook and be sure to tag @kiwanisclublincolncity, @lincolncityculture and @lincolncityoutlets. Hunt for happy hearts while you are out getting some exercise and sunshine!”
