Here are a couple nice examples of art that is owned and displayed by residents of Dupont Circle in Washington, DC.
Just because it isn’t Saturday-
That doesn’t mean I can’t post a photograph of a sculpture!
This bronze statue, by Ivan Meštrović, is located at 2343 Massachusetts Avenue, Northwest, Washington, D.C. in front of the Croatian Embassy. Ivan Meštrović donated this work to the Croatian Franciscan Fathers, who commissioned it as Saint Jerome. Saint Jerome (341 – 420 A.D.) was born on the territory of modern Croatia. The inscription reads, “Greatest doctor of the church.”
These are just a few selections from Saint Dominic’s Catholic Church located on E Street SW in Washington, DC. I’ll be posting more images of their beautiful stained glass windows over the coming days and weeks. Enjoy!
Yesterday I had the extreme pleasure of visiting the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden of the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. Here are just a couple of selections from that visit. Look here in the upcoming days/weeks when I will be sharing the fruits of that visit. Besides the sculpture, I was also able to capture a few decent shots of the butterflies (no monarchs, mostly the little brown ones.) At any rate, do keep an eye on this space if you are interested in a brief, virtual tour (in digestible pieces) of the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden on the Mall in Washington, DC.
Located on Scott Circle in Northwest Washington, DC, this statue is in the Classical Revival style. Dedicated in 1900.
I call this window Trump’s America. As the death toll mounts, he and his lackeys scurry to spread disinformation, lies, fear and hate to pursue their agenda. Beyond this double horror of pandemic and madness, there is hope. Black Lives Matter and other grassroots movements illustrate a groundswell of anger and disgust with the extremes of negative narcissism and entitlement that is Donald Trump. In this sense, black changes from the color of mourning to the color of resistance and hope for the future.
