New Light Art Installations Engage Underutilized Spaces on Pennsylvania Avenue NW

In an effort to encourage the use of green spaces in the city, on June, 24, the Golden Triangle BID, DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and National Park Service revealed two new art installations in public parks located at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and I Street NW. Created by DC artist Duilio Passariello, the two light sculptures will modify existing infrastructure within James Monroe and Edward R. Murrow Parks as part of a broader project to redesign Pennsylvania Avenue with environmentally sustainable infrastructure. The energy efficient light art pieces consist of color-changing LEDs, a water-soaked prism of stainless steel mesh, and the radio recordings of iconic news anchor Edward R. Murrow. Read more here.
