VINALHAVEN, Maine (AP) — Maine-based pop artist Robert Indiana plans to participate in a celebration of his art in countries across the world called International HOPE Day.

The artist is best known for his “LOVE” image, in which the L and a leaning O sit atop the V and the E. His ‘HOPE’ image follows a similar theme. It will be a part of installations and events in Munich, Caracas, Miami, New York City and Vinalhaven, Maine, on Sept. 13, his 86th birthday.

Indiana will make a public appearance outside his residence and studio on Vinalhaven Island on that day. There will be a large ‘HOPE’ sculpture installed for the event.

Maui County voters will decide in the next few weeks whether to ban the cultivation of genetically engineered organisms, at least temporarily. A “yes” vote on the Nov. 4 ballot initiative would require large multinational companies that research new varieties of corn and soybeans in Maui to stop farming until they are able to prove their methods are safe. This could upend global agriculture giant Monsanto’s research pipeline for new varieties of corn and soybeans. (AP Photo/The Maui News, Matthew Thayer)
