Established in 2022, The Robert Indiana Legacy Initiative, LLC aims to increase awareness of and appreciation for the depth and breadth of the work of Robert Indiana.
Addressing curators and scholars, collectors and art-market professionals, and the public at large the The Robert Indiana Legacy Initiative will:
-maintain a collection and archive of Robert Indiana’s art
-encourage and support exhibitions and public installations of Indiana’s work
-assist with and promote scholarly research on Indiana and his artistic career
-manage the website www.robertindiana.com and distribute a newsletter
The Robert Indiana Legacy Initiative is headed by Simon Salama-Caro, who began working as a gallerist with Robert Indiana in 1988, devoting the next few decades to safeguarding and advancing Indiana’s artistic achievement. From 1995 onwards, Salama-Caro worked with Indiana as his exclusive world-wide representative for the authorized production, sale, and promotion of such Indiana sculpture series as LOVE (1966), ART (1972), AHAVA (1977), ONE Through ZERO (The Ten Numbers) (1978), and AMOR (1998).
Simon Salama-Caro and his family will work closely and collaboratively with the Star of Hope Foundation, a not-for-profit organization created by the artist Robert Indiana. It is expected that royalties from the sale of works in such sculpture series, offered through Salama-Caro, and from a licensing agreement managed by the family, will help fund the Star of Hope Foundation’s arts-related programs.
