Have you seen the LOVE Sculptures around the country by American artist Robert Indiana? They are scattered around the country and make for some great photo opportunities. We have seen two of them on recent travel adventures and are already planning our next trip so we can see several more. Have you taken any pictures with these iconic LOVE sculptures? I’d love to see them!

LOVE Sculptures around the US
When Natalie and I were in New York City, we found this classic LOVE Sculpture near our hotel. It was such a fun mother-daughter weekend trip and we saw so many things. Heading to New York City? Take a look at these tips for how to take your own FREE walking tour of New York City.
LOVE is a pop art image by American artist Robert Indiana. It consists of the letters LO over the letters VE; the O is canted sideways so that its oblong negative space creates a line leading to the V. The original image, with green and blue spaces backing red lettering, served as a print image for a Museum of Modern Art Christmas card in 1964. ~ Wikipedia
If you are in the Northwest Arkansas area, you can see another LOVE sculpture at the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art. It’s free to walk around the gardens but there is a fee to go inside and see the exhibits.
On our trip through Indianapolis last summer we were heading over to the Indianapolis Museum of Art to see the original LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana. We had finished touring the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site and put the Art Museum into the GPS, but I put the address in wrong. Unfortunately, we followed the directions out of the city and completely missed the museum. Since we were out of time by then, we had to postpone our visit to this original LOVE sculpture. But it’s definitely on our list for our next visit to the city.
