Charlottesville, Virginia: Love Butt

A 1,600-pound, ten-foot-tall pink keister with a heart tattoo was hauled from LA to NYC for a cable comedy show pilot. After much on-camera hilarity, the butt was left here, permanently, in September 2015.

IX Art Park

2nd St. SE, Charlottesville, VA
IX Art Park. I-64 exits 121 or 121B. Drive north on Hwy 20 into town. Soon after the highway becomes divided, turn left at the stoplight onto 2nd St. SE. It looks like a dead-end, but keep driving. The street narrows, bends sharply to the left, and descends a hill. At the bottom of the hill keep driving, and you'll see Love Butt straight ahead, backed up against a line of trees at the edge of the parking lot.

The Love Butt was a hit for our silly family who love big things! We got lots of hilarious pics just before someone parked in front of her. She has clearly received a tattoo redo and has been out in that hot Virginia sun -- the butt now has a tan line.

Love Butt needs a little love, and a little Charmin! The weather is taking its toll, and it looks like people have as well. One cheek has graffiti on it and the other has a few chunks taken out. Too bad, because Love Butt is quirky and fun! It sits in IX Art Park, which needs a little love as well, but has a great farmers' market on Saturdays!

Love Butt

Pretty disappointing -- it's on the edge of a parking lot and we couldn't really get to it because of cars parked in front of it.

The Love Butt is a heartbreaker.

The Love Butt is still there, but moved under trees across from the brewery.

The Love Butt is located in a very cool art park. There is also a unicorn bicycle statue.
