Hearts for Art

Heart Art

Crystal Bridges’ annual I ♥ Art Family Day was this past Sunday (right on Valentine’s Day this year), and we asked our guests to vote for their favorite artworks by laying a paper heart on the gallery floor next to the works they LOVE the most.  At the end of the day, we tallied up the votes to determine which artwork is the family sweetheart.  Here are the top five:
