Latest heart sculpture installed in Bel Air to 'celebrate the arts'

The Harford County Cultural Arts Board recently worked with four artists to create a beautiful heart sculpture, which joins several others around Bel Air.

The newest sculpture is located at 2 S. Bond St. in front of the Mary Risteau District Court Building.

Artists Robin Capecci, Alexandra Kopp, Barbara Love and Sandy Norris worked many hours to create a one-of-a-kind art piece celebrating the arts in Harford County, the Cultural Arts Commission said in a statement.

Titled "Creating Community through the Arts", the sculpture is a part of a Bel Air Downtown Alliance's Hearts of Harford project that began in late 2012, with the first sculpture being unveiled in February 2013.

The Cultural Arts Board's heart is designed to enhance the public space in and around downtown Bel Air and establishes the downtown area as an art destination, the board said in its statement.

According to the Downtown Alliance website, there are at least seven other Hearts of Harford sculptures in place at various locations around town.

The Harford County Cultural Arts Board, located at 319 S. Main St. in Bel Air, is a commission created by the Harford County Council that serves to encourage the growth and stability of cultural organizations in Harford County. The board is part of the Harford County Department of Community Services,
