Robert Indiana from A to Z: The Alphabet and the Icons

http://www.allentownartmuseum.org/

In Allentown ,Penn., nearly one hundred works of art from the private collection of one of America’s most celebrated living artists―including some childhood drawings and new works that have never been exhibited, are on view from Oct. 12. Robert Indiana is a founding father of Pop Art and gave it its “hard edge” in the 1960s. He is also one of the first and most important word artists, renowned for his recognizable icons including LOVE, HOPE, ART, EAT, and his latest masterpiece, The Alphabet, which is in many ways the culmination of his journey using text as image. Focusing on word art, this exhibition gives insight into Indiana’s landmark career, involving American themes, bright colors, and simple compositions.
