ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A New York state-owned collection of silkscreen prints created by a leading figure in the pop art movement is on public display in downtown Albany.

The state is exhibiting a series of 10 silkscreen prints by American artist Robert Indiana outside the visitor center and gift shop at the Empire State Plaza.

It’s the first time the prints will be on display at the plaza since they were given to the state in 1974 by ex-Gov. Nelson Rockefeller.

A former New York City resident who lives in Maine, the 87-year-old Indiana native is best known for his iconic “LOVE” symbol that depicts the L and a tilted O over the V and E.

The prints on display through July 4 feature a number, zero through nine, and colors that have specific personal meanings for the artist.
