Install Opening: Tuesday, November 9 at 2pm to 4pm
On view through February 2022

On Tuesday, November 9 at 2pm ET, please join the Delegation of the European Union to the United States, the German Embassy and the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District for the opening of artist Mia Florentine Weiss’ sculpture LOVE HATE in the United States.

After extensively traveling through Europe, the larger-than-life 1.5-ton metal sculpture has crossed the Atlantic for the first time to stimulate social dialogue and promote peace, landing in Washington DC’s Farragut Square. Following its DC appearance, the sculpture will appear at the 2022 South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas.

The celebration will kick off with remarks by EU Ambassador Stavros Lambrinidis and German Ambassador Emily Haber, followed by an exclusive interview with Mia by social sculptor Philippa Hughes. The audience will then be invited to participate in a thought-provoking “Happening in 3 acts.” Guests can enjoy complimentary hot beverages and European bites while writing their own messages for love and peace to be placed on the sculpture.

LOCATION: Farragut Square at 912 17th St NW. For event information, visit euintheus.org/events.
