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.

Channel 9 News has a story on how the designers of the Nationals ballpark are trying to "go green" and win LEED certification for the stadium; the lights, the water filtration system, and recycling plans are all part of trying to meet the qualifications set out by the US Green Building Council. You can also read an Examiner piece from a few weeks back on the stadium's green-itude.
