#TravelTuesday LOVE

West 55th Street and 6th Avenue.
It’s not the original, but maybe the most well known. Robert Indiana’s LOVE image came to life in poems in 1958; Soon after it appeared in paintings as “Love is God”. In 1964 a red, blue and green version was created for the Museum of Modern Art’s Christmas card, and in 1973 the United States Post Office issued a stamp using the iconic image. The sculpture in New York City was completed in 1971. Crowds gathered to watch as the tilted “O” was lowered into place. It’s a nice reminder to us all.
