LOVE Sculpture To Move To Dilworth Park

Dates: February 23, 2016 – spring 2017

Robert Indiana’s LOVE sculpture will move across the street to Dilworth Park starting on February 23, 2016 while the sculpture’s home — Philadelphia’s iconic John F. Kennedy Plaza, better known as LOVE Park — gets an overhaul in 2016 and 2017.

The public space will be under construction until spring 2017 to bring grand redesign plans — including adding green space and structural improvements, installing a new water feature, creating concession areas and opening up access to the park — to fruition.

The sculpture will be restored and reinstalled in the same location at LOVE Park when it re-opens in spring 2017.


The City of Brotherly Love’s best-known landmark is LOVE itself — the Robert Indiana sculpture in John F. Kennedy Plaza, northwest of City Hall. Installed in 1976, LOVE was briefly snatched away in 1978, but popular demand brought it back where it belongs.
