Friday, December 2, 2016 | 3 – 4 p.m.
Sister Cities Park, 18th and Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Robert Indiana’s AMOR (1998) sculpture will be officially dedicated at its new permanent home in Sister Cities Park on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. AMOR was originally placed on loan in commemoration of the World Meeting of Families and Papal Mass of Pope Francis. The acquisition of AMOR for the City’s collection was made possible through the generosity of the City of Philadelphia, the Morgan Art Foundation, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Mrs. Edith R. Dixon, and the Association for Public Art.

City officials will be joined by Philadelphia Museum of Art President and COO Gail Harrity, Morgan Art Foundation’s Simon Salama-Caro, Association for Public Art Executive Director and Chief Curator Penny Balkin Bach, and Center City District President and CEO Paul Levy in welcoming the sculpture to its new home.
