Constructing a Label

Hello, I want to automatically construct labels of the form "A = <value of A>" for a number of plots. However, I cannot quite figure out how to generate the above expression. My first idea was to construct it as a string label = "A = " <> ToString[A] but this looks horribly if A is more complicated than just a single literal. So I assume that I have to "concatenate" the Mathematica expressions "A = " and A (rather than the stringified A). But how do I do that? My feeble attempts with label = RowBox["A", "=", A] are displayed exactly the way I entered them, i.e. with the literal "RowBox" printed out. Thanks in advance, -Nikolaus -- =C2=BBIt is not worth an intelligent man's time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that.=C2=AB -J.H.
