Robert Indiana: Love and Hope

This exhibition of over 40 works brings together the poetry of Indiana and his most famous images—images that remain relevant to American identity and the power of language as seen in his silkscreens, paintings, and sculptures.

This retrospective exhibition chronicles the career of Robert Indiana from 1934 to 2017 and showcases many iconic images, including “EAT,” “LOVE,” and “HOPE” along with two of his latest masterpieces, “Like a Rolling Stone,” a series featuring 1960s pop-culture figure Bob Dylan and “THE ALPHABET”. This definitive work that labels him a,s the world’s premiere word artist, will be featured in this collection, some of which have never been shown. These works showcase Indiana’s unique method of working with the same image on paper, canvas, print, and in three-dimensions.

This exhibition was organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA. 

This exhibition is generously supported by Annapolis Subaru.
