Building Kansas City: Beth Martens Brings Construction Theme to Parade of Hearts

Parade of Hearts 2024

Out of 468 total entries, P1’s own Marketing Proposal Specialist (and fine artist) Beth Martens was selected as one of the final 100 local artists to create heart art for the 2024 Parade of Hearts.

Once again, the final hearts will be on display throughout the Kansas City metro for people to find and enjoy. Later, they will be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting organizations in the following categories: health and wellness; education; small and minority-owned businesses; arts and culture; and hospitality and tourism.

This is the second year Beth has been one of the artists. “The Parade of Hearts Event has been so well received by the Kansas City Community,” she said. “It not only raises funds for charity, but brings fun and enjoyment to people throughout the metropolitan area.”

“Being part of the event this year has allowed me to use my creativity to give back to the community,” Beth added. “I chose my theme because I wanted to highlight the hard-working men and women in the mechanical and construction skilled trades, and bring appreciation to them and the importance of their roles in building Kansas City.”

P1 may be biased, but we think that theme is perfect!

Parade of Hearts kicks off April 13 at the American Royal Center in Kansas City. The 10 a.m.-4 p.m. event is open to the public.
