ROCHESTER - The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts, in association with The Argh Gallery, announce on Friday there will be a one-day-only exhibition featuring a genuine "LOVE" screen print signed by Robert Indiana.

The event will take place in the Bernier Room at the Rochester Community Center on May 4 from 1-3 p.m.. Light refreshments will be served. The public is encouraged to attend.

Robert Indiana (born Robert Clark; September 13, 1928-May 19, 2018) was an American artist associated with the pop art movement. His "LOVE" print, first created for the Museum of Modern Art's Christmas card in 1965, was the basis for his 1970 "LOVE" sculpture and the widely distributed 1973 United States Postal Service "LOVE" stamp.

In 1994, Robert Indiana did a limited run of green "LOVE" prints to benefit the Greenpeace organization. Indiana personally gifted one of the prints to Sarah Knoy, director of the Greenpeace offices in Chicago.

Currently valued at $5,000, Knoy and The ARGH Gallery (Manchester, NH) are happy to display the print at the Rochester Museum of Fine Arts and offer it to collectors and art enthusiasts.

The Rochester Museum of Fine Arts is located in the Rochester Community Center at 150 Wakefield Street, Rochester, NH. The RMFA is sponsored by Bernier Insurance, Rochester Main Street, and the City of Rochester. Visit www.rochestermfa.org for more information.
