Arts in Foggy Bottom Biennial Sculpture Exhibit, Sculpted: Histories Revealed, Opens May 17th

arts-14The award-winning Arts in Foggy Bot­tom out­door sculp­ture bien­nial, one of Washington’s lead­ing pro­grams for pre­sent­ing pub­lic art, is back for its fourth season.

The 2014 exhi­bi­tion, Sculpted: His­to­ries Revealed, opens May 17th and fea­tures 16 con­tem­po­rary sculp­tures by 15 artists, most of whom are nation­ally rec­og­nized. The works, pre­sented on pri­vate prop­er­ties and busi­nesses, respond to the spaces, per­sonae, and sto­ries of the His­toric Foggy Bot­tom neighborhood.

The exhi­bi­tion was selected by 2014 cura­tor and pub­lic art expert Deirdre Ehlen MacWilliams, in part­ner­ship with Arts in Foggy Bot­tom founders and co-directors Jackie Lemire, Jill Nevius and Mary Kay Shaw, with sup­port from the Arts in Foggy Bot­tom advi­sory committee.

We are priv­i­leged to have Con­gress­man Lewis visit our com­mu­nity to share his insights and thoughts about the his­tory — and future — of civil rights.
