Sculpture Down to Scale: Models for Public Art at Federal Buildings, 1974-1985

This Week
Daily, Now - March 28, 2021
From: 11:30 AM to 7:00 PM

As can be observed in DC, monuments and public sculptures are essential to the American landscape, serving as public expressions of identity, morality and pride. This exhibit at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, which opens Friday and runs through June 6, 2020, features nine models (or “maquettes”) of incredible works that were meant to be public art. You will see the true and original vision of each artist in these models, which are works of art in their own right.
