Happy Valentines Day!

I’m sure you’ve seen the iconic “Love” sculpture, either in-person or through one of its many TV or movie appearances, but how much do you know about this famous artwork?

Steve Levenstein, at Urbanist, has compiled a wonderful photo gallery and collection of facts about this world-wide favorite.

“Robert Indiana (formerly Robert Clark) first expressed the essential iconography of “LOVE” in 1958 but it wasn’t until 1964 that the image garnered wide public notice, via a Christmas card commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.” – Steve Levenstein
