St. Elizabeths East Campus, Gateway Pavilion
2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, SE Washington, DC
The DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH) and the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) are pleased to announce the dedication of Here to Here, a vibrant installation creating connectivity at St. Elizabeths East Campus and the Gateway Pavilion from one end of the green space to the other. The artwork by Sheila Crider is commissioned by DCCAH and DMPED, as part of the St. Elizabeths East Way-Finding Public Art Project.
Here to Here consists of 24 brightly colored triangular aluminum sculptures that activate the extent of the lawn in front of the Gateway Pavilion, a temporary community space on campus utilized for various activities. Sheila Crider's design for the sculptures was inspired by the rooftops of the historic campus buildings and based on chain link fencing and directional arrows.
