Most famous for his LOVE images, self-defined sign-painter Robert Indiana broadened his classic LOVE theme in 2008. During that U.S. election year, he created a similar HOPE image, inspired by Barack Obama’s campaign and book “The Audacity of Hope;” this image was used to raise more than 1,000,000 USD for Obama’s campaign. Of the mindset that people were “desperately in need of hope,” Indiana was hopeful that Barack Obama could bring a newfound sense of that hope to the American public. The first HOPE sculpture was unveiled in Colorado during the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
