Heart On Your Sleeve

Heart on Your Sleeve

To wear your heart on your sleeve is to be vulnerable, to be present, to show your full and authentic self. Art and language can gesture to what is possible, to our best selves, and give us courage to share our hearts.

Heart on Your Sleeve — a public poetry and art project, organized in New York City and Philadelphia by Molly Gross with excellent collaborators — brings the perspectives of poets and artists to the public in small and meaningful ways. For this initiative, poems are artfully printed on take out coffee insulation sleeves as an offering, a way to pause, read, and reflect.
