LOVEworks Harrisonburg is a public artwork designed by artists Nicole Martorana, Jeff Guinn, and Mike Herr. Developed as part of the Virginia is for Lovers social media marketing campaign 2013 by the Virginia Tourism Corporation, it receives additional support from Harrisonburg Tourism, Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance, and Arts Council of the Valley, as well as numerous community partners.
Each letter represents one of the four focus areas – ethnic and cultural diversity, agricultural heritage, outdoor recreation, and the arts – and is constructed of locally sourced and re-purposed materials. Learn more about each letter’s community significance and materials used in construction.
COMING SOON! Educational plaques describing the broader cultural themes, materials used and their significance, and the names of the local artists who designed the sculpture and contributing community partners will be on display with the sculpture.
LOVEworks Harrisonburg is the perfect backdrop for photo opportunities, performance art, picnicking, or other forms of community engagement in historic downtown Harrisonburg. Come share the LOVE!
