Robert Indiana, born Robert Clark (born September 13, 1928), is an American artist associated with the pop art movement. His “LOVE” print, first created for the Museum of Modern Art’s Christmas card in 1965, was the basis for the widely distributed 1973 United States Postal Service “LOVE” stamp. His media include paper (silk screen) and Cor-ten steel sculpture.
The Plaza Hotel is the second hotel of that name on the site. The French Renaissance château-style building was designed by Henry Janeway Hardenbergh and opened to the public on October 1, 1907.
The Peninsula New York is ideally located on Fifth Avenue and 55th Street in Midtown Manhattan, in the heart of the city’s most prestigious shopping, entertainment and cultural district. The hotel is within walking distance of Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Fifth Avenue shopping, excellent restaurants, historic museums and exciting Broadway theatres.
The Love Sculpture is one of the most famous pieces of pop art and just happens to be sitting on the corner of Sixth Avenue at 55th Street in midtown Manhattan.
In 1958, Robert Indiana was experimenting with LOVE as he played with poetry and art by placing the “LO” above the “VE”. Then in 1964, he was commissioned to create a Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) that become one of its most popular items. Following the card’s success, he started exhibiting his art and sculptures in the “LOVE show” in New York. It would became an icon in the 60s with Hippies symbolizing the free Love and Peace generation.

🌸💇🏽So much to see and do, it is so overwhelming. So much fun, pop culture, fashion, design & off course architecture.💅🏼💆🏼We need time at a near by salon/spa, but we better keep going, because there’s more to see and do.
Socrates said that the only life worth living is a well-examined life.
So take time to examine yourself well, do a lot of self-introspection, and in all things be true to yourself. Try to keep it real.
Living fully means exploring and being happy with who you are, how you feel and who you are emotionally drawn to.
A flower’s true beauty is only found in the garden where she belongs.
