Oklahoma Raises Awareness for Women’s Heart Disease on National Wear Red Day

February 2, 2012

On Friday, February 3rd, Oklahoma Heart Hospital and The Paseo Arts District will be teaming up to celebrate National Wear Red Day for Women and raise awareness of heart disease risks for women.

The event will last all day, starting at 10:00 am with the recognition of the 2011 Heart Hero Award honoree at the Oklahoma Heart Hospital’s south campus, 5200 East Interstate 240 Service Road. The Heart Hero Award is given each year to a person who offers extra efforts to educate people on how to save a life through CPR and an automatic external defibrillator.

Morning events will also include a live art demonstration, featuring Oklahoma artist Bert Seabourn, and information on how to maintain a healthy heart. In the evening, Seabourn will continue his piece at Paseo Arts Space, 3022 Paseo, and will have his paintings for sale. There will also be a First Friday Gallery Walk from 6:00 to 10:00 pm, featuring works of art with the common theme of red and hearts.  There will be a dress design competition, and the winning design will be displayed for an entire month at Ruth Meyers in Nichols Hills Plaza, 6471 Avondale Drive.

The celebration will continue throughout the month of February with art displays by Paseo members at the Oklahoma Heart Hospital’s north and south campuses and Paseo Arts Space. Artwork will be for sale and proceeds will be split amongst the artist, the Paseo Arts Association, and the Volunteer Auxiliary Foundation at Oklahoma Heart Hospital.
