Happy Valentine's Day - LOVE, PEACE and HOPE...


Above is Robert Indiana's famous and popular LOVE sculpture in New York City.  Did you know he also created a LOVE sculpture for the same word in Hebrew?

"Indiana's work often consists of bold, simple, iconic images, especially numbers and short words like EATHUG, and, his best known example, LOVE."  from Wikipedia

His "iconic work LOVE was first created for a Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art in 1964 and later was included on an eight-cent United States Postal Service postage stamp in 1973, the first of their regular series of 'love stamps.' The first serigraph/silk screen of 'Love' was printed as part of an exhibition poster for Stable Gallery in 1966 (See Love and The American Dream. The Art of Robert Indiana, page 87)." from Wikipedia

For a quick background on the artist visit Wikipedia, Robert Indiana.

Check out "Google" today and, most importantly, remember to love the ones you're with!
