INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The iconic Robert Indiana LOVE sculpture in from of the Indianapolis Museum of Art has been a fixture on the northwest side of Indianapolis for many years.

It has been the backdrop for countless wedding photos, graduation pics, and snaps of new couples touring the museum for the first time.

But on January 9, you’ll have to pay the price of admission to the IMA in order to get your picture taken with the sculpture. That’s because it’s being moved indoors.

The IMA announced the news in an email sent to its subscribers on Thursday. The IMA says the move is critical to preserving the sculpture for generations to come.

Famous Hoosier artist Robert Indiana created the LOVE sculpture in 1970. Many other cities have since created replicas of the sculpture.
