HOPE in Manhattan
HOPE in Manhattan (53rd Street and 7th Avenue)
It is no secret that the one thing the world needs today is HOPE. Begun in 2007 as an idea at the artist Robert Indiana’s 19th Century island studio, ironically named The Star of Hope. HOPE has now become both the art Icon of our time and the central topic of discussion in the great economic and political capitals of the world.
When interviewed on NBC-TV, USA, about his reasons and goals for these works of art, Indiana said with dutiful confidence “I want to bring Hope to the world”, a statement of both mission and ambition.
