There’s no better symbol for the City of Brotherly Love than, well, LOVE.  Robert Indiana’s stacked steel, red-painted letter statue has been on view at John F. Kennedy Plaza just north of City Hall since 1976 in what is now affectionately called Love Park. Created when the country was embroiled in the Vietnam War, LOVE has since become a symbol of peace, one of Philadelphia’s best-known landmarks, and one of the most celebrated works of Pop Art.
