July 30, 2021Visit the National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden This Summer
In DC or afar, you’d be hard-pressed to find an art lover who didn’t fall in love with The National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden. Taking in Tony Smith’s Wandering Rocks or Magdalena Abakanowicz’s Puellae (Girls), you can’t help but contemplate each piece of art and its place in the city and in the wider world. Studying each sculpture, you might even find yourself considering who you really are and what your place in this world will be.
But, really, you don’t need to have passionate love for sculpture, or even art in general to have a powerful experience at The National Gallery of Art’s Sculpture Garden. Even if you look at a sculpture and feel nothing at all, you’d struggle to not feel the impact of the garden as a markedly natural spot here in the city. Surrounded by picturesque treelines and expansive green lawns, you can’t help but feel a little more calm, whatever’s going on in your life outside of this moment.
