Love Park is the name locals have given to John F. Kennedy Plaza in center city Philadelphia. The famous Love sculpture was made by Robert Indiana. It “was first placed in the plaza in 1976 as part of the United States’ Bicentennial celebration. It was removed in 1978, but the sculpture was missed and the chairman of Philadelphia Art Commission, F. Eugene Dixon, Jr., bought the sculpture and permanently placed it in the plaza, in 1978.”
