The LOVE Statue

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.

The AMOR Statue on the Art Museum Steps

One of the City of Brotherly Love’s best-known landmarks is LOVE — the Robert Indiana sculpture now in Dilworth Park. Now, To mark the historic visit by the pope to the U.S. and Philadelphia in September 2015, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Association for Public Art teamed up to install the six-foot-tall bilingual version — “amor” translates to “love” in Spanish — of the iconic sculpture, which temporarily lives on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
