Alaska Airlines, along with the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation, unveiled a new heart sculpture at San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday, Valentine’s Day.

The giant artwork, which is in sky blue and gold, is part of the Hearts in San Francisco program, and is located in the food court at Terminal 2 of the airport. The fiberglass heart is 5’ (1.5 meters)

The sculpture was designed by artist Gina Teichert, and is called “Outerlands.”

Alaska said that the heart symbolizes the carrier’s commitment to “delivering kind-hearted service to the Bay Area community.” The sculpture will remain at the airport for the foreseeable future.

“It’s fair to say Alaska Airlines and Virgin America employees have a big crush on the Bay Area,” said Annabel Chang, vice president of Alaska Airlines in the Bay Area.

The Hearts in San Francisco program, of which this sculpture is a part, began in 2004, and since then, over 350 hearts have been created to help raise more than $11 million to fund programs at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital.
