The lights are going out on Robert Indiana’s Whitney Retrospective Beyond Love tonight, so if you have been procrastinating on making it over there, and you have a chance today, you best jump on it.
Everyone knows the classic stacked love statue, but you might not know his other large pieces of pop iconography: targets, circles, stars in circles, and numbers within the circles and stars.
Be ready for an eye candy exhibit of very large, very bold, very simple shapes, numbers and letters.
This is just another of the many premiere gala openings I attended in 2013 but never got around to writing about. Here are a few shots I took that night.
To view the work before it comes down, head over to The Whitney Museum Today!
The Whitney Museum of American Art – 945 Madison Avenue ( at 75th Street), New York, NY 10021
There is a PRIVATE MEMBER VIEWING TODAY FROM 10 am to 11am. After that it’s open to the public from 11am – 6pm.
