The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts
is having its monthly meeting on Thursday (June 20), and one of the agenda items
is "Washington Canal Park
, 2nd Street between I and M Streets, S.E. Sculptures by David Hess." Apparently earlier this year the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities
put out a $300,000 Call for Artists
for "permanent public artworks" at Canal Park, and Mr. Hess was the winner. The commission will be reviewing his submission and providing final recommendations; alas, there doesn't appear to be any documentation anywhere out on the web of exactly what his winning submission looks like. Hess's web site
shows much of his other work, but I haven't found anything on a Canal Park project. More as I get it.
