FBA Successfully Crowdfunds Public Art for Neighborhood

Watching Post by Graham Caldwell, the Sputnik-y collection of convex mirrors situated on the signpost at 26th and I Street, will be sticking around for good. The sculpture was one of the pieces selected for the 2014 Arts in Foggy Bottom Biennial Sculpture Exhibit.

This piece resonated with many members of the community and since it was located on public property, crowdfunding was the obvious choice to raise the money to purchase the piece and pay the associated permitting and insurance fees. The FBA board used the platform Razoo, which is specific to nonprofit causes, to collect the funds.
