The city’s newest public art installation, “I Love You” by Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt, will be unveiled on March 25, according to a news release.

This installation will mark the fourth in the “Site See: New Views in Old Town” annual public art series. It will be on display through November 2022 and accessible from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

According to the release, the concept came from Behar and Marquardt’s desire to bring community building to public art. The installation features the words “I Love You” illuminated in pink neon lights and mounted 15 feet high. Below will be a handpainted ground mural of a pink and white carpet, which is meant to provide “an open room welcoming everyone,” according to the news release.
