A Visit to the Star of Hope:

               Conversations with Robert Indiana


“The film was a vital part of the Farnsworth’s 2009 Robert Indiana exhibition. It gave viewers something they couldn’t have experienced in the exhibition itself: an intimate, revealing portrait of the artist and his remarkable home and studio environment, a former Odd Fellows lodge called the Star of Hope. Dale Schierholt captured both Indiana and the Star of Hope in a film that very much stands on its own”.

An intimate visit with one of America’s foremost artists, the film offers a glimpse inside the home, life and career of the artist who brought us the iconic image LOVE. Throughout, Indiana offers us insight into the motivations of some of his most important works and gives the viewer a comprehensive look at a fascinating career.
