LOVE is a pop art image by American artist Robert Indiana. It consists of the letters LO over the letters VE; the O is canted sideways so that its oblong negative space creates a line leading to the V. The original image, with green and blue spaces backing red lettering, served as a print image for a Museum of Modern Art Christmas card in 1964. ~ Wikipedia
If you are in the Northwest Arkansas area, you can see another LOVE sculpture at the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art. It’s free to walk around the gardens but there is a fee to go inside and see the exhibits.
“Virginia is for Lovers” has been Virginia’s state slogan since 1969 so it makes sense that the word would be found in various art forms across the state. There are more than 150 LOVE art exhibits in the state of Virginia.
Here is the word spelled out in the Visitors Center at Colonial Williamsburg.
