Portland, Maine (AP). Pop artist Robert Indiana’s mansion maintains a long-standing relationship with the Morgan Art Foundation, which owns the copyright for his iconic 1960s LOVE series and his work. An agreement was reached on promotion and preservation. Said Friday.
The New York Morgan Art Foundation, in partnership with the Maine-based Star of Hope Foundation, aims to transform the Indiana home into a museum and celebrate its work.
While the museum is being formed, the two organizations will work to showcase Indiana art at venues across the country.
“We did a lot of good things, but the lawsuit overshadowed that,” said Larry Stars, chairman of the Star of Hope Foundation. He said the museum will likely be completed in a few years.
Indiana real estate worth more than $ 80 million was involved in a lawsuit brought by the Morgan Art Foundation. The trial was initiated on May 19, 2018, the day before the death of 89-year-old Indiana on Vinalhaven Island, 15 miles (25 km) from Rockland, Maine.
