Previous Exhibitions

Arts in Foggy Bottom is a biennial outdoor sculpture exhibition held in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The exhibitions could be seen in front of homes and businesses in our historic neighborhood between 24th and 26th Streets and H and K Streets, NW — day and night, from May through October. Since the project was founded in 2007 by co-directors Jackie Lemire, Jill Nevius and Mary Kay Shaw, Arts in Foggy Bottom has engaged and enlivened the community through exhibitions in 20082010, 2012 and 2014. Take a look at what The Washington Post had to say about our 2014 exhibition – Sculpted: Histories Revealed. “There’s a delicate balancing act going on in the streets of Foggy Bottom, where the fourth edition of a biennial sculpture exhibition has settled in for the next few months. Issues of taste, scale, durability and subject matter have all been carefully weighed, as they often are when dealing with public art.”

–Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post, June 13, 2014
