2. Bringing HOPE to New York
With the LOVE statue away for cleaning, Indiana’s HOPE statue is helping keep the love alive in New York City by attracting tourists and New Yorkers to journey only a few blocks from the LOVE sculptures location. Located at 53rd and 7th Avenue, this art installation is another take on Indiana’s classic design.
The piece was moved to this location in 2014 in time for International Hope Day. It is estimated to cost nearly $3 million and is a whopping 13-feet tall. However, for many New Yorkers, Robert Indiana’s works are priceless because of the joy they bring to many passersby.
