LOVEwork at Smith Mountain Lake

The “LOVE” letters are made of plywood and layered with fiberglass and Styrofoam and measure 4 feet by 4 feet. Each letter represents a different activity that can be found at Smith Mountain Lake — the L was made from a pair of water skis and a wakeboard; the O is a large golf ball; the V is two fishing lures; and the E is a throw-ring buoy to illustrate boating.

Visitors are encouraged to take photos with the LOVEwork and share with loved ones on Facebook at or on Twitter with the special hashtag #LOVEVA. A complete list of the LOVEwork locations is at
