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.
