Who better to profile for February than American artist, Robert Indiana, creator of LOVE—an iconic pop art image which consists of the letters LO over the letters VE.  The original image had green and blue spaces backing red lettering.  The LOVE design has since been reproduced in a variety of formats for rendering in displays all around the world. The closest ones can be seen in Philadelphia on the University of Penn campus and John F. Kennedy Plaza.
