Hearts A Bluhm

While I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day, I had a change of heart (pun intended) and decided to make a post for the real star of this holiday, our hearts! Along Magnificent Mile, hearts are "blooming" everywhere! Northwestern Memorial Hospital's Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute launched a campaign adorably called "Hearts A Bluhm" to create awareness and educate everyone of the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, which is the leading cause of death in America. 100 five-foot one-of-a-kind heart sculptures were created by students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Columbia College and sponsored by local organizations and companies.

Now that we know what "Hearts A Bluhm" is all about, let's see those hearts!
