Arts in Foggy Bottom Outdoor Sculpture Biennial: Turf and Terrain opens Saturday, May 14 at 4:00 pm at 842 New Hampshire Avenue NW (at the yellow house on the corner of New Hampshire Avenue & I Street).
Thirteen contemporary sculptures and public artworks will be on view in the Foggy Bottom Historic District for the 2016 Arts in Foggy Bottom Outdoor Sculpture Biennial.
The exhibition, presented by the award-winning Arts in Foggy Bottom, one of Washington’s leading public art programs, runs from Saturday, May 14 through Saturday, October 22.
Curator Danielle O’Steen selected local, regional and international artists whose works will be installed on site in front of private homes throughout the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. This year’s show, Turf and Terrain, will be rooted in the sites and stories of Foggy Bottom, while taking on an expanded notion of medium and sculpture. Artists will engage the legacy of historic Foggy Bottom ranging from the figural, the abstract, and even the fantastical; to interactive, performative, and new media works.

A seasoned DC insider said it this way: “It was the A-List and Beyond.”
Some 1,400 guests ranging from art to culture contributors to social writers to seasoned political types, attended the 75th anniversary of the National Gallery of Art Wednesday night.
The invitational black-tie event, sponsored by the trustees of the National Gallery of Art, brought in museum founders and donors from New York, upscale neighborhoods of D.C., and you-name-it places from around the globe.
No exaggeration, the layout of superb cuisine and the cocktail bars in the main halls went from here to there on either side of the Mercury Fountain. Guests -- including Dame Jillian Sackler, Bob Bennett, Barbara Allbritton, David Rubinstein, and Judith F. Terra -- mingled at tables surrounded by some of the greatest art in the world.
The consensus: the Gallery’s anniversary itself was a work of art.
