Dear Mr. McLeod:

In its public meeting of 19 January conducted by videoconference, the Commission of Fine Arts approved, based on its prior review of the submission materials, the concept design for the installation of a sculpture, Twilight, by the notable Washington sculptor John Cavanaugh, and associated landscape within the triangle park in Reservation 143A, located at the intersection of New Hampshire Avenue and 18th and Q Streets, NW. Citing Cavanaugh’s role in promoting the emergence of a diverse artistic community, the Commission members recommended the thoughtful consideration and curation of public art, with a diversity of artists and expressions, within the neighborhoods of the city.

Please consult with the staff on the further development of the final design and details such as foundations, plantings, lighting, and signage for this project. As always, the staff is available to assist you with the next submission.
