This Valentine’s Day, Kanye West’s childhood home will be “heart bombed” as a way to show physical appreciation to such an important landmark in Chicago’s South Side. Teaming up with Skyline Council of Landmarks Illinois and Donda’s House (named after Kanye’s late mother) the event will see youth and attendees showering Yeezy’s former home with paper hearts.
“We are thrilled to be working with Landmarks Illinois’ Skyline Council,” Donnie Smith, Executive Director of Donda’s House said. “Landmarks Illinois came out to the site recently to give us an assessment of the house, with recommendations for renovating and repairing the property. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the house is, overall, in pretty good shape.”
The home, located at 7815 S. South Shore Drive, Chicago, will be turned into an arts centre for deserving youth in the community to encourage their creative expressions for them to consider careers in the arts.
The heart-bombing event will take place on February 14th at 4:15pm for everyone to place their crafts on the property. Donda House representees will officially unveil the plans for the home.
