The Hoosier state’s most famous living artist comes back home again to Indiana through the IMA’s first major exhibition of his original prints. The Essential Robert Indiana explores the stories behind many of the artist’s most iconic works for the first time, using material drawn from extensive interviews with the artist to uncover new meanings and complexities. This noteworthy exhibition re-affirms the artist’s role as one of Pop art’s premier printmakers and demonstrates the importance of his graphic works, including the famed LOVE, in the context of his larger career.
