All are available to be purchased privately. We welcome you to join us online this fall to celebrate the legacy and sculpture of Robert Indiana.

*The Robert Indiana Legacy Initiative is headed by Simon Salama-Caro, who began working as a gallerist with Robert Indiana in 1988, devoting the next few decades to safeguarding and advancing Indiana’s artistic achievement. From 1995 onwards, Salama-Caro worked with Indiana as his exclusive world-wide representative for the authorized production, sale, and promotion of such Indiana sculpture series as LOVE (1966), ART (1972), AHAVA (1977), ONE Through ZERO (The Ten Numbers) (1978), and AMOR (1998). Simon Salama-Caro and his family are working closely and collaboratively with the Star of Hope Foundation, a not-for-profit organization created by the artist Robert Indiana. It is expected that royalties from the sale of works in such sculpture series, offered through Salama-Caro will help fund the Star of Hope Foundation’s arts-related programs.
