Artist Abodes

In 1973, Robert Indiana, the artist best known for his "LOVE" paintings, bought a 12-room Victorian building on an island off of Maine for $10,000. Forty-one years later, Indiana's Star of Hope Lodge is getting its closeup in the Journal, where Indiana describes how he once used "the old drugstore on the ground floor" as his main studio and how, in the library, he "painted the walls purple and the ceiling blue." He also has "24 stuffed giraffes" in the "ceremonial room." Photos, this way. [Wall Street Journal; photo via Robert Indiana]
