Featured Collections: Art of Words

Words, letters and language have been both subjects and materials for many contemporary artists. For some artworks, they add another layer of texture or shape. For others, they stir emotion, tell a story, or make a political statement.

The artist Robert Indiana’s iconic LOVE (Red Blue Green) (1966–1998) currently welcomes visitors at the entrance to YSP. To coincide with our exhibition Robert Indiana: Sculpture 1958-2018, explore other artworks at YSP that use the power of words.
