Heart of Hearts – Times Square Valentine Heart
February 9 – March 6 in Duffy Square
- Since 2008, the Times Square Alliance has invited architecture and design firms to submit proposals for a romantic public art installation celebrating Valentine’s Day in Times Square. This year, Times Square Arts partnered with Center for Architecture to select Heart of Hearts by Collective-LOK (CLOK) as the winning design. CLOK’s Heart of Hearts is a faceted ring of golden, mirrored hearts that creates a kaleidoscopic pavilion multiplying the spectacle of Times Square. Diamond-shaped spaces inside each heart will create “kissing booths” within the ring where couples will find their activities mirrored, allowing both privacy and publicity in the Heart of Hearts.
