This image is actually a design composed by Steph Goralnick of street heart art made by Chris Uphues. Goralnick boasts a large collection of professional designs and photographs on her website, but for this particular holiday she decided to disperse her collection of Valentine’s Day cards around Brooklyn and some are still yours for the taking! You can go on your own Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt by following Goralnick’s heart-shaped Google map.
Goralnick writes, “i was going to put them up for sale online, but then decided that since the economy is in a state of such deep suckage i would spread the love and give them all away for free in order to ensure that people have a little something to give to their friends, enemies, lovers, moms, coworkers, neighbors, secret crushes or total strangers on the subway… i have scattered 22 packets of cards around town, all hidden within plain sight. if you’d like to go hunting for some, you can use this handy map to guide you.”
So, for those of you Brooklyn or NYC residents still in need of a few Valentine’s Day cards, get out there and get searching — pronto — while supplies last!
