Heartwork: Art Benefit for Target House


Heartwork is a project designed to raise money for art supplies within the art room at Target House—this wonderful home-away-from-home for the families of children facing long-term treatment at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

The idea is simple. Every year, a group of talented artists will create a series of posters to raise money for the art room. Each of the posters will feature a different interpretation of the Target House elephant mascot, chosen because it represents family, long life, strength and playfulness—attributes with special meaning at a place designed for families to live, play and heal.

Here’s a sample of the posters available in this year’s Heartwork benefit.
