"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways." -Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Love is in the air this time of year and residents confessed their fondness for Dublin in a citywide writing project now on display to the public at the Dublin Heritage Park & Museum. 

The "Dublin Crush" Writing Project called for locals to tell a tale, write a love letter, or craft a poem or essay sharing how they are connected to the City of Dublin.

According to the City of Dublin website, "The exhibit includes a total of 50 unique works from 43 contributors, ranging in age from 5 to 79."

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, February 13, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., in the Little Classroom at the Murray Schoolhouse, located at the Dublin Heritage Park and Museums. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. 

Laura Stankovich, Director of the Extended Day Child Care at Frederiksen Elementary, told Patch:

"The EDCC kids at Frederiksen who participated are in grades second through fifth. Their poems and words caught the eye of Heritage & Cultural Arts Manager, Ann Mottola and they were all chosen to be showcased in the exhibit at The Dublin Heritage Park & Museum."

The sweet nothings and displays of devotion are on exhibit until March 2.
