September 22, 2015 – January 2016



To mark the historic visit by the pope to the United States and Philadelphia in September 2015, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Association for Public Art (aPA) have teamed up to install Robert Indiana’s tremendous sculpture AMOR atop the museum’s steps on the east terrace overlooking the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.


One of the City of Brotherly Love’s best-known landmarks is LOVE itself — the Robert Indiana sculpture in John F. Kennedy Plaza, northwest of City Hall. Now, the six-foot-tall bilingual version — “amor” translates to “love” in both Pope Francis’s native Spanish and the Church’s traditional Latin — of the iconic sculpture will mirror LOVE at the other end of parkway in a temporary display that will last for the next four months.
