The award win­ning Arts in Foggy Bot­tom Out­door Sculp­ture Exhibit is back for its third sea­son in the Foggy Bot­tom His­toric Dis­trict with a new theme, a new cura­tor and inno­v­a­tive artists. Sculpt­ing Out­side the Lines, this year’s theme, is the inspi­ra­tion of cura­tor, Laura Roulet, who will be work­ing with founders and co-directors of the exhibit, Jackie Lemire, Jill Nevius and Mary Kay Shaw to cre­ate another dis­tinc­tive dis­play of pub­lic art from April 21 through Octo­ber 20, 2012.

Sculpt­ing Out­side the Lines show­cases 13 sculp­tures by 15 artists, most of whom are nation­ally rec­og­nized. Foggy Bot­tom will be the show­case for cast con­crete works by Dan Stein­hilber who has had solo exhi­bi­tions at the Hir­sh­horn Museum and Sculp­ture Gar­den and the Bal­ti­more Museum of Art. Bar­bara Liotta, who recently showed at the Phillips Gallery as part of Inter­sec­tions, will cre­ate a large-scale site-specific work.

For the first time, new media is included such as a pro­jec­tion by Jef­fer­son Pin­der, whose exhibits include the Smithsonian’s National Por­trait Gallery and the Stu­dio Museum of Harlem. Joseph and John Dum­b­acher, locally-renowned for their solo exhibit at the Cor­co­ran Gallery of Art, will install a 13′ alu­minum abstract sculp­ture. Dalya Luttwak’s recent solo exhi­bi­tions include the Kreeger Museum, Wash­ing­ton DC. She will cre­ate a site-specific sus­pended “root work.“
