The pop artist best known for his LOVE word sculpture has created a similar public art installation that spells HOPE _ in celebration of President-elect Barack Obama's message of hope.
Artist Robert Indiana's HOPE was unveiled Thursday at Jim Kempner Fine Art, a Manhattan gallery. Obama's inauguration is Tuesday.
Indiana's publicist says the artist raised more than $1 million for the Obama campaign by creating HOPE prints, posters, T-shirts and other memorabilia. No decision has yet been made on where the sculpture will be permanently displayed.
The 6-foot (2-meter) stainless steel sculpture was shown privately during the Democratic National Convention in Denver last August.
Versions of Indiana's classic LOVE sculpture appear in several cities around the world, including Philadelphia.
