DCCAH Announces St. Elizabeth’s East Way-Finding Public Art Project Proposal Winner

The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) announces that Ward 8 artist Sheila Crider has been selected for the St. Elizabeth’s East Way-Finding Public Art Project for her proposals Here to Here and Wishing on Stars. Ms. Crider’s work was selected by an art selection panel consisting of public art specialists, DMPED and District of Transportation representatives, and Ward 8 community stakeholders. This summer the sculptures will be installed along the St. Elizabeth’s East Campus on Martin Luther King, Jr. and Alabama Avenues, SE.

The welcoming installations were designed to lead the community and visitors to the St. Elizabeth’s East Campus and Gateway Pavilion during the redevelopment process. The project is the first of many public art activations that will take place on the campus over the next several years.
