LOVE Statue

Sculpture is being renovated through fall '17; check out sister sculpture AMOR nearby

Note: Robert Indiana’s LOVE sculpture has been removed for renovation while the sculpture’s home — Philadelphia’s iconic John F. Kennedy Plaza, better known as LOVE Park — gets an overhaul ahead of its re-opening in September 2017. However, just a short walk away from LOVE Park stands the equally grand AMOR sculpture, the bilingual version of the LOVE sculpture, on display at Sister Cities Park.

Take in the views of Boathouse Row (which is illuminated at night) or wave at the early-morning scullers as you travel along the eight-and-a-half mile loop stretching from the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the Falls Bridge.
