Protect Yo Heart Day is a community art event by New York artist UnCutt Art , that takes place on April 23rd. The date, 4/23, is a reference to Proverb 4:23 -  “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”

UnCutt refers to his project as a day of self-love and self-appreciation. The street artist sees it as a reminder to reset and recenter.

I have recently noticed PYH stencils in my neighborhood so UnCutt or another artist decided to spread the message before April.
