A Philadelphia Valentine

Sculptor: Robert Indiana
Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, and the place where one of my Valentines currently resides. It is the American city known for having the most outdoor sculpture. This particular piece is located on Locust Walk which is in the heart of the Penn campus. I love the sculpture for its letter placement, and for its vibrant color.

Sculptor: John J. Boyle
Ben Franklin sits on Locust Walk, in all his bronzed glory looking over the students of Penn. As the story goes... Ben lost his button due to his plump figure, causing it to pop off...

and land here.

Sculptor: James Peniston

My littlest Valentine... hanging with Ben in Olde City.

Happy Valentines Day!   L.
