What’s Up With Those Sculptures Popping Up in Foggy Bottom?!

fbottomart1Wondering about all of those sculptures in Foggy Bottom?

Arts in Foggy Bottom, Washington’s award-winning public art program, is currently presenting Turf and Terrain, the fifth Arts in Foggy Bottom Outdoor Sculpture Biennial, through Saturday, October 22.

As you walk through the neighborhood, check out 13 contemporary sculptures, new media installations, and artistic performances selected by Washington-based curator Danielle O’Steen — all displayed in front of private homes throughout the Foggy Bottom Historic District (between 24th and 26th Streets NW, and H and K Streets NW).fbottomart2

“This year’s exhibition is focused on creating expanded landscapes, which will stand in direct dialogue with the neighborhood’s architecture and rich history,” says O’Steen. “The selected works will respond to their chosen sites while also exploring the boundaries of what qualifies as outdoor sculpture.”

fbottomart3Plus, it’s FREE fun for everyone!

Arts in Foggy Bottom will host free curator and artist-led tours and workshops throughout the course of the exhibition, addressing the artwork and highlighting the art’s connection to the historic Foggy Bottom community. But also feel free to visit at your convenience. Self-guided tour brochures will be located at each sculpture site in addition to downloadable programs on the Arts in Foggy Bottom website.
