Edmond’s Largest Art Piece to be Installed on Thursday, October 15

Installation of “Key to My Heart” by Zonly Looman will begin on the morning of Thursday, October 15th. This large, steel piece is approximately seven feet tall and 32 feet long.  It will be located on the north end of the Festival Marketplace located at 30 West First Street.

“Key to My Heart” is a large-scale, interactive piece that echoes the tradition of lovers adding locks to the famous Love Lock Bridge in Paris, France. This piece encourages visitors to add their locks to symbolically display their everlasting love and connection.  The Edmond Historical Society & Museum and multiple downtown businesses will have locks available to purchase for visitors to Downtown Edmond.

The private funding partners for “Key to My Heart” are Matthew & Kim Myers, Chris Dingess, David Maschino, Ashley & Casey Massegee, Kyle & Lex Copeland, and Chris & Anabelle Anderson. As they have done previously with several pieces in the community, Ditch Witch of Oklahoma is volunteering their services to assist with the installation process.
