2018 Heart Bombing with the YUPs

Help The Landmark Society’s Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs) show a vacant home (and other buildings!) in the Susan B. Anthony Neighborhood some love! Starting at 2:00pm on Saturday, February 10th, we’ll meet up at the 540WMain Community Learning Academy to make Valentines for this house and other buildings in need of some love. YUPs, kids of all ages, and families are invited to attend–we’ll provide a brief overview of what heart bombing and preservation are all about then we’ll hand over the valentines-making supplies. With valentines in hand, we’ll walk around the block for a photo shoot.

After we heart bomb the house, any remaining YUPs are invited to help us heart bomb a few other sites around the city. We’ll provide crafting supplies but feel free to bring your own too! This is a FREE, family/kid friendly event and is open to all–children, adults, YUPs and non-YUPs alike!
