Now that’s art!

I’m walking down K street today, and what do I see in the lobby of the new 1700 K Street building but a giant Frank Stella sculpture. A giant at eight feet high, it fit beautifully in the building’s new lobby, a sleek minimalist lobby at that. A lobby that was surprising to see Stella’s All Astir in.

Frank Stella came to prominence in the late 1950s and early 1960s as one of America’s great abstract painters. He then slowly shifted from flat geometric designs into three-dimensional canvases and only since the late 1980s moved into sculpture and art for public places.

Now you too can enjoy his work, for free at that. Just wander over to 1700 K Street for a view.
