The World’s Most Romantic Public Art

There’s nothing more romantic than a stroll with the one you love — and since it’s been an unseasonably warm February in many places, you might be able to manage one this Valentine’s Day without freezing to death in your companion’s arms. As long as you’re outdoors, you’ll score points with your beloved (and spend exactly $0) if you plan your walk around a particularly romantic piece of public art. In case you’re strapped for inspiration, we’ve collected some of the best love-inspired specimens, past and present, from around the world, and our finds range from the dreamy to the outright bizarre. Claes Oldenburg’s Cupid’s Span in San Francisco, Jenny Holzer’s provocative projections, and, of course, Robert Indiana’s Love await you after the jump.
