Note: The original LOVE sculpture—now housed by the Indianapolis Museum of Art—saw immediate success when it made its debut in 1970. Over the course of several decades, Indiana would go on to create over 50 editions of the sculpture for sites around the world, from New York City and Philadelphia to Singapore and Taipei. While these pieces vary in scale and colour palette, they are all rendered in Indiana's signature serifed style and always incorporate a tilted character—even when written in another language or spelling out a different word, like HOPE.
