VINALHAVEN, Maine (AP) – Maine-based pop artist Robert Indiana plans to participate in a celebration of his art in countries across the world called International HOPE Day.

The artist is best known for his “LOVE” image, in which the L and a leaning O sit atop the V and the E. His “HOPE” image follows a similar theme. It will be a part of installations and events in Munich, Caracas, Miami, New York City and Vinalhaven, Maine, on Sept. 13, his 86th birthday.

Indiana will make a public appearance outside his residence and studio on Vinalhaven Island on that day. There will be a large “HOPE” sculpture installed for the event.
