Kanye West's childhood home is set to be "heart-bombed" this Valentine's day. Developed from a partnership between West's arts organization Donda's House and the Skyline Council of Landmarks Illinois, 'Ye's former residence will receive a public display of affection in the name of love and historic preservation, as per the organization's official site.

The event, which is part of a Donda’s House campaign called HeARTs Matter Week, is described as “a public show of love to historic sites and local landmarks by showering the site with physical expressions of affection, such as paper hearts.” Purchased by rapper Rhymefest back in 2016, the house was remodeled into a central arts center, complete with recording studio, learning spaces, and music museum for Chicago youth.

“We are thrilled to be working with Landmarks Illinois’ Skyline Council,” said Donnie Smith, the Executive Director of Donda’s House. “Landmarks Illinois came out to the site recently to give us an assessment of the house with recommendations for renovating and repairing the property. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the house is, overall, in pretty good shape.”
