LOVE Artist Robert Indiana at Center of Exhibit

VINALHAVEN, Maine (AP) _ Maine-based pop artist Robert Indiana will participate in International HOPE Day, a celebration of his art in countries across the world.
The artist is best known for his "LOVE'' image, in which the L and O sit atop the V and E. His HOPE image follows a similar theme. The image will be a part of installations and events in Munich, Caracas, Miami, New York City and Vinalhaven, Maine on Indiana's Sept. 13 birthday. He will turn 86 that day.

Indiana will make a public appearance at noon outside his residence and studio on Vinalhaven Island on Sept. 13. There will be a large HOPE sculpture installed for the event.
