DC Diary

We spent the weekend in Washington D.C. The Hirshhorn museum was closed when we got there at dusk, but that did not stop us from enjoying some of the sculpture outside and taking some pictures.

'Clouds over Congress (pun unintended)'

'Washington Monument', Robert Mills, marble granite and sandstone, 555 feet high, 1884

Mark di Suvero, 'Are Years What? (for Marianne Moore)', welded steel I beams, 1967

Gaston Lachaise (1882 - 1935), 'Standing Woman', Bronze, conceived 1932 (cast 1981)

Jean Arp, 'Evocation of a Form: Human, Lunar, Spectral', Bronze, conceived 1950 cast in 1957

Great shots, Sunil.
The university I graduated from has a di Suvero sculpture, as does the Cincinnati Art Museum.
