Student's public art to spruce up downtown D.C.

Student's public art to spruce up downtown D.C.
- San Francisco State University:

"I'm only about three months away from install, and it's still hard to imagine what it will look like, but it will be big, that's for sure,' Kerber said of the piece commissioned by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities in conjunction with Lowe Enterprises.

The two-year process has been a learning experience for Kerber. Finishing a public art piece requires constant communication between the artist, the client and engineers who ensure that the art meets building codes. Kerber's work will adorn the side of a mixed-use retail/residential building as part of revitalization efforts in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood." - Ethan Kerber

This piece of public art is not for the 5th and K corner - but rather a decorative grate to beautify the large fresh air intake grate adjacent to Busboys' 5th Street entrance.
