Description

LOVE Sculpture Temporarily Removed for Renovation

Dates: Through Late November 2017

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 late November 2017.

The sculpture will undergo restoration, including being repainted, over the next several months, and will be restored and reinstalled in its original location at LOVE Park in late November 2017.

The AMOR sculpture — the builingual version of the LOVE sculpture — is still on display at Sister Cities Park, a short walk from LOVE Park.

Stay tuned for more information on when both LOVE Park and the LOVE sculpture will be reinstalled.

Overview

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.
