The 30th Annual Art From the Heart exhibition and contest features a roughly three-week exhibit, and an opportunity to see a host of works which pay homage to the coastal landscape, and which were created close to home.

All Art From the Heart Events are held at the 2900 block of Arendell Street in Morehead City, and the event includes an exhibit from all participating artists from Friday, February 16 until Thursday, March 8 that the public is welcome to come discover and admire.
