The LOVE Sculpture in Philadelphia

The famous LOVE sculpture by artist Robert Indiana resides in Center City, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and has been an icon since its installation in 1976.

The sculpture found its home in LOVE Park, formerly known as the John F. Kennedy Plaza, just northwest of City Hall. LOVE was briefly removed but brought back by popular demand in 1978.

Nicknamed LOVE Park for its reproduction of Indiana's 1970 famous art piece, the park received the sculpture in 1976 as part of the United States Bicentennial celebration. In 2016 the park, originally dedicated to the late U.S. President John F. Kennedy, underwent a major reconstruction project converting the landscape into a predominantly green area with several gardens and an open view of City Hall.

Through the years, the LOVE landmark has become a synonymous image with the City of Brotherly Love.
