love sculpture

Since the summer of 1999, when Jeffrey H. Loria and his wife, Sivia, gave Penn a Robert Indiana LOVE sculpture in red, blue and green, it has become a popular post-Commencement gathering spot for photos. LOVE, a polychromed aluminum sculpture located at 36th and Locust Walk, measures 72" x 72" x 36" and weighs 500 pounds. Penn's sculpture is one of many variations on the theme that Indiana created between 1966 and 1998, including a Christmas card for MOMA, a serigraph done especially for the ICA's Indiana show at Penn, and the sculpture that gives Center City's "Love Park" its name.
