Robert Indiana’s HOPE a celebration of Barack Obama’s message.

NEW YORK (AP) — The pop artist best known for his LOVE word sculpture has created a similar public art installation that spells HOPE — in celebration of Barack Obama’s message of hope.

New York Artist Robert Indiana’s HOPE was unveiled Thursday at Jim Kempner Fine Art, a Manhattan gallery.

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 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.
