Straight to the Heart

For this post, I sat down with pop artist Jim Dine, the man behind the two red hearts ❤️ ❤️ that stand at the entrance and welcome visitors to the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.

KIDDING! Although I certainly wish.

Anyhow, this beloved piece, Twin 6’ Hearts, has been located in the MMFA’s “Sculpture Garden” since 1999. Dine is a universally known artist who falls in the same category as Liechtenstein and Johns. And because the fourteenth is approaching, it would be nice to appreciate his distinctive works of art that are filled with the symbol of love. ♡

But of course feel free to purchase for a loved one. 😂

So regardless of whether or not you have someone to take that cute Valentine’s Day picture with in front of the Dine masterpiece located down the street from our campus, I strongly encourage you to head over to 1379 Sherbrooke Street West to have a real-life glance at this beloved sculpture. 

On another note, below you will find some stories, facts, and insights that I hope will be of interest to those counting down the days to the fourteenth, to those who dread the date, as well as to those who could not give a cupid’s arrow about it. 💘
