"Lift Off" at 5th and K Streets NW.
The survey on reader reaction to the new sculpture at 5th and K Streets NW has closed. About one-third of readers (34%) reacted positively to the addition to the street-scape, while two-thirds (64%) initially expressed reservations. Seventy-one individuals voted in the poll, which is now closed. Some also expressed their comments here.
I am looking forward to completion of the sculpture, including the addition of lighting. I think that most, if not all, of us can agree that it is good to see the District supporting public art and livening the street-scape. It certainly a positive development to see more art and less prostitution on that particular corner!
