 Open Heart -- New at PIER 39! 
PIER 39 is home to Open Heart, part of San Francisco General Hospital Foundation's 2014 "Hearts in San Francisco" collection that supports the vital programs and initiatives of San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. The sculpture is permanently located on Level 1 at the picturesque bay end of PIER 39.

Open Heart was hand-painted by local artist Patrick Dintino, a San Francisco native whose mother's life was saved more than a decade ago by open heart surgery. "Open Heart represents the larger idea of love and understanding self-concept -- of opening our hearts and seeing what's inside, what makes us tick." said Dintino. "It symbolizes the openness of our city's heart, as well as the idea of falling in love with and leaving your heart in San Francisco."
