One of the highlights of living in DC is undoubtedly the limitless art and architecture you can take in on any given day. There’s almost always a special event to enjoy, featuring the work of local or nationally renowned artists. And, even if there isn’t a particular event going on, you can always turn to the city’s inherent beauty, from the sculptures and structures that make up DC landmarks to the city’s floral features and natural artistry.
All too often, though, we find ourselves overlooking the innate beauty of our hometown. In those moments, the best way to regain your appreciation of the city is by immersing yourself in its cultural beauty, such as at the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden. In addition to the artwork and cultural presence you’ll find in the sculpture garden, you’ll find yourself with a chance to relax and unwind, despite resting in the heart of the city.
Wandering the garden, you’ll take in works of art like Typewriter Eraser, Scale X (created by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen) and Tony Smith’s Wandering Rocks. And, amidst these expertly crafted works, you’ll take in the fresh air and DC’s natural beauty, all too often overlooked. Together, the Sculpture Garden just might let you fall in love with Washington all over again.
