DC: Where are we?

Lincoln at L‘Enfant

Workman atop National Gallery

At first I did not know what to make of the ads at L’Enfant Plaza in the Metro. My first reaction was this has to be a really bad movie. It was kind of cool, a second generation to supermarket floor ads, now finding other venues. Which fit the day I spent in DC, checking out art and interesting installations.

Leo Villareal’s Multiverse in the concourse of the National Gallery

Part of Ai Weiwei’s According to What? work at the Hirshhorn

Antonio Rovaldi’s The Opening Day

Rovaldi’s film installation works well. A pitcher throws the ball from one wall and breaks various ceramic at the opposite wall. The sound, which is such poor quality in most installations, is top notch here.

Ron Mueck’s Untitled (Big Man)

I think people loved Barbara Kruger’s Belief+Doubt the best

All of this was days before Sandy arrived, planning to create several uncalled for installations of her own.
