the Awakening and the national harbor......

i guess one of our public sculptures will be leaving the district......

Until now, the piece de resistance of his National Harbor project has been a carefully guarded secret. In the coming months, the outdoor sculpture "The Awakening" will be dug up from Hains Point, its home for the past 27 years, then barged and trucked to an undisclosed location where it will be cleaned and restored.

    it's going to be sorely missed by many.

    it was recently featured in a spread in "Running Magazine".

    oh well.....

    $$ talks, bs walks (or ambles slowly)
