MARKER_201213_05.JPG: Golden Triangle Arts
Monument & Marker
Steel, 6 x 15 feet
Rania Hassan's Marker functions as a candy-colored, supersized and magnified detail of the artist's small paintings of knitting made monumental. Marker has layered meanings and connections to women's history. The sculpture's bright pink hue and bold steel shape are contrasted by its curvy and elegant forms. Marker serves as a monument to women as makers, who perform work that is often hidden from public view by making their work both visible and venerated.
Rania Hassan explains, "My artwork has been inspired by generations of women. It links me to my mother, her mother, and all the women who came before them -- working with their hands, making things for their families and themselves, bringing people together, and connecting us in so many ways."
Rania Hassan lives and works in Washington, DC. Her artistic practice traverses sculpture, installation, drawing and performance and investigates human connection, time,memory and identity.
Monument & Marker is a partnership between the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) and the Smithsonian to extend the Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative -- Because of Her Story into the streets of Washington DC's central business district. Because of Her Story, is one of the country's most ambitious undertakings to research, collect, document, display and share the rich, complete and compelling story of women in America.
Golden Triangle Arts brings museum-quality art to the neighborhood and weaves encounters with art into our everyday lives. Visit Maren Hassinger's Monument, the second project in this partnership, on the Connecticut Avenue Overlook, four blocks north of here.

Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.

2020 photos: Well, that was a year, wasn't it? The COVID-19 pandemic cut off most events here in DC after March 11 and then the BLM protests started followed by the child president trying to steal the election in November. Trump's handling of the pandemic has been a series of disastrous missteps and lies, encouraging his minions to not wear masks and increasing the deaths here. As the chant goes -- Hey, hey, POTUS-A; how many folks did you kill today?
Number of photos taken this year: about 246,000, the fewest number of photos I had taken in any year since 2007.
