Times Square Kiss-In on August 14, 2010!
On the anniversary of the end of World War II, the Times Square Alliance invites couples from all generations and of all types to celebrate again in Times Square, in honor of the US Armed Forces and in celebration of the universal ideals of peace, love and hope.
The sculpture “Unconditional Surrender”, which was created by acclaimed artist Seward Johnson, memorializing a famous photo snapped by Lieutenant Victor Jorgenson and evoking the iconic LIFE magazine cover photo taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt.
A special invitation is extended to couples whose kisses bridge boundaries, be they religious, political, racial, national or otherwise, as well as veterans of WWII, returning veterans from the Iraq War, and couples in costumes commemorating the original 1945 kiss.
