Go See DC: Olin's NGA Sculpture Garden

(NOTE: This is a re-purposed posting from the past to get you excited about going to DC this fall.)

Sadly, after digging through disks and folders, I can't find many of the dozens and dozens of photos I have taken at this elegant design.  Just steps off of America's front yard is this sculpture garden which provides one of the great spots for resting during an active day in DC.  At its center is this massive, yet simple fountain.  The garden uses a generous array of plant material to  soften it while it sits between the large institutional buildings that contain it on three sides.  And it uses classic forms and materials allowing the sculpture to take much of the credit here.
