BODIES…The Exhibition put its heart on display Wednesday, August 15th for its “Have A Heart” event, by unveiling a huge heart delivered to South Street Seaport’s Pier 17. The heart sculpture is 13ft long, 7ft wide and 12ft high, and designed by artist Faith Schexnayder at FlatFork Studios in Austin, TX. Chief Medical Director, Dr. Roy Glover was the speaker at the event and spoke of the importance in making healthy choices in food, and regular exercise for the betterment of the heart. In honor of the campaign, BODIES donated hundreds of tickets to the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, providing the club’s children with the opportunity to visit the Exhibition and educate themselves about their bodies.
