August 30th, 2013 – Robert Indiana “LOVE”

ImageTo kick off our inaugural show we looked to our LVAA family for inspiration!

Shannon Westerman, Executive Director of Louisville Visual Art Association selected Robert Indiana‘s LOVE for myriad reasons, and for only one reason. He cannot think of a singular piece of art that each and every time one sees it, it makes one smile! Whether you see Indiana’s original 1966 LOVE on canvas in a museum or view his LOVE sculpture first hand in Philadelphia, on the grounds at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, in Louisville while on loan to the 21c Museum Hotel, in a cheesy television commercial, in a film, in a video or a photograph, or even on a postage stamp… its simplicity of message and design conveys universal joy.
