FBWEV Celebrates The Renovated Washington Monument and Portrait Gallery Installation
On a beautiful fall day, October 9th , more than twenty FBWE Villagers walked to the Washington Monument, rode to the top, and along with a historical tour, viewed the much publicized grand art installation by Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada. The installation, “Out of Many, One” is a composite portrait of 50 faces and stretches between the World War II and Lincoln memorials along the south side of the reflecting pool.
Villagers noted that many had never toured, or had not toured since their childhood, one of our Nation’s most spectacular monuments, and agreed that the installation was a great temporary addition to the Mall.
