NEW YORK (AP) — Artist Robert Indiana is known world over for his LOVE image. His stacked letters with a tilted O became a symbol of the 1960s counterculture revolution. But the image also eclipsed all his other work.
But now the artist's first major retrospective at New York's Whitney Museum of American Art could change that.
"Robert Indiana: Beyond LOVE" opens Thursday. It features 95 works completed over the past five decades.
Indiana, who turned 85 this month, calls it "a dream come true, a little late."
Curator Barbara Haskell says the show represents the depth and breadth of everything Indiana has done.
His paintings and sculptures are filled with images of highway signs, roulette wheels, circles, stars within circles, numbers and simple words such as Eat, Die and Hug.
