ARTIST Steed Taylor
PROJECT Daughters and Sons Knot
LOCATION Vermont Ave, Washington DC, USA
YEAR 2010

This graphical groundplane treatment outside the Department of Veterans Affairs on Vermont Ave in Washington DC commemorates American soldiers killed in recent wars. The soldiers’ children’s names were written on the bitumen, and painted over after a dedication ceremony. This sensitive approach to community engagement and commemoration has also resulted in a sophisticated design outcome that activates and transforms the space. The iconic work measures 300 x 60 feet, and can also be seen from Google Maps Satellite View.
