Angel Poyón Cali, Guatemala
Kikoten B’ix, 2005
Installation
In Kikoten B’ix, Poyón takes a nostalgic and reflective look at his childhood through the symbolic use of a toy that was used in children’s games in various parts of the world, but that in the artist’s daily scenario becomes a social and historical referent. In the midst of the internal armed conflict that dragged on for more than 30 years in #Guatemala (1960-1996), children’s games became a mirror of reality, a land that replicated daily life. Poyón builds disturbing mental albums, imbued with innocence.
With a sophisticated language, which moves away from the traditional canons of representation, it establishes a counterpart between hatred and pleasure, between destruction and beauty. #toysoldiers #childrenstoys #musicalsymbols #grandstaff #gclef #bassclefnotes #creativeart #urbanart #instacool #worldbank #youngartists #childrenofwar #washingtondc #dmv #wilworksdc

Acorn Park

Marking the site of the original “silver” spring, after which Silver Spring, Maryland was named, this giant acorn-shaped gazebo and surrounding .12-acre park are all that remains of Silver Spring founder Francis Preston Blair, Sr.’s 1000-plus acre country estate and summer home, “Silver Spring.” The gazebo was constructed in the 1850s by Washington, DC builder Benjamin C. King at the bequest of Blair, who was editor of The Globe, an influential Washington newspaper.

Near Fort McNair in SW DC, the Titanic Memorial memorial dedicated to the men of the Titanic was erected by the "Women of America." The figure had been chosen in a competition, restricted to female artists, sponsored by a group who called themselves the Women’s Titanic Memorial Association. It was designed by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. She was not only an artist but a prominent socialite patron of the arts, benefitting from the double wealth whammy of being a Vanderbilt and marrying a Whitney. #community #instacool #instawow #discoverdc #historicallandmark #seenonmyride #shipwrecks #thingstododc #titanicmemorial #dmv #creativeart #Urbanart #sculpture #wilworksdc

Think Before You Holla
What a performance these young ladies gave tonight. While the language was colorfully urban, it was straight to the point! Street harassment or sexual harassment is still harassment and it's time to #stopthebullying. "Think Before You Holla explores street harassment, but 'street harassment' does not only happen on the street. It happens at our jobs, in our malls, in our coffee-shops--anywhere that harassers feel entitled to take up someone else's space. I hope that this piece starts a conversation between you and your friends, family members, acquaintances, and strangers. I hope you think about intervening and what that means to you.
Keep speaking out. Let's #reclaimourspace and tell harassers to #ThinkBeforeYouHolla!" ~Taylor Reynolds, Director

Mary's Garden, located at Washington’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception,
was designed by landscape architect Brian Kane. At one end of the garden is a reflecting pool and a life-size limestone statue of the Virgin Mary. The bubbling Magnificat Fountain has a border inscribed with words from the Bible: “My being proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit finds joy in God my savior.” #fountain #virginmary #birdbath #community #instawow #instacool #garden #discoverdc #thingstododc #dmv #catholic #wilworksdc #seenonmyrun
