Robert Indiana Would Like to Cover the World With HOPE

posted by lbrockway

Remember the big, red LOVE statue that stacked the LO over the VE and presented the word as a work of art? Well the same sculpture who wanted to fill the world with love would now like to cover it with HOPE. See this inspiring feature on him on The Today Show.

Now in his 80’s, Indiana has re-fashioned the simplicity and beauty of the LOVE with the new HOPE image as a contemporary symbol of our moment in history.

HO to the PE, that spells HOPE.

See this inspiring segment on Robert Indiana–and his desire to bring HOPE to our challenging times–on the Today show.
