ABCDC is our most recent public art addition! Created by Jesse Kirsch for Art in Bloom, the National Cherry Blossom Festival’s 2021 public art exhibition, the sculpture will now reside permanently in Georgetown. The piece was inspired by antique wood type from the world of letterpress and the alphabetized streets of DC. Each letterform has a unique shape and history – much like the city, its iconic cherry blossoms, and its people. A hidden message among the jumble of letters aims to bring viewers hope for a better day to come. Head to 1666 Wisconsin Ave NW and get your photo opp sitting in the petal.
