09/17/2021

Robert Indiana’s LOVE sculpture stands majestically in the Pulliam Family Great Hall, but did you know before we acquired it in 1975, LOVE traveled far and wide. It was fabricated in North Haven, CT in 1970, then moved to Indy for a brief IMA visit in 1970, on to Central Park in New York City for the 1971 holiday season.

It returned to Indy in 1972, where it greeted Indianapolis National Bank visitors, then moved to Eli Lilly's campus. Since 1975, LOVE has been on continuous display at Newfields. Talk about spreading the LOVE! ❤️ #DiscoverNewfields

Awesome lume
Lume do you know is there a time limit like if I get tickets at 7:30 is it till they close or can I stay as long as I want
Well I am certain that the exhibit and day will be great. But if you have a ticket for 11:00a I guess arrive later (??). Showed up 15 minutes early and came in through the parking garage. Top of steps we were sent back down because it might get too crowded in the lobby before they open. Thing is the lobby is really large with very high ceilings. The area they sent us back dow to wait in is small with low ceilings. They have no idea what they are talking about. Truly crazy. I await this craziness to end and hopefully a better time in the events and exhibits.
Newfields will you be bringing the Frida experience!?? Thanks
My daughter was quite inspired by Van Gogh at the Lume!
Enjoyed the Lume VanGogh last week.
Had an amazing time! Thanks 😁❤
I am so upset. I have been waiting so long to order my LUME tickets. I became a member yesterday, and I have been watching for tickets to be available since midnight. I have watched your avail visit dates not populate for hours. Finally, right about 11:00, they became available. There are no choices for an adult who is not an access member. I have tried to call many times and I am getting nowhere partly because of an awful phone reception. I do not want to leave a message and wait 48 hours. I need help now PLEASE.
I'm going to wait this out for the Bob Ross and/or Thomas Kinkade immersive schtick.
Is the Van Gogh exhibit still Coming in July?
