As part of its nation-wide tour, the “Times Square Kiss” statue recently made a stop at Emeritus Senior Living in Carmel Valley.

The tour features a 500 lb., 6-foot version of acclaimed artist Seward Johnson’s famous 25-foot sculpture depicting the “Times Square Kiss” that took place on Aug. 14, 1945 — the day America learned that World War II was over.   The larger sculpture was moved into Times Square for the first National Spirit of ‘45 Day in August 2010.

Once again, the Spirit of ‘45 campaign is traveling to cities and towns across America to promote the observance of  National Spirit of ‘45 Day on the second Sunday in August.
