Washington DC, our nation’s capital, is renowned for its grand monuments honoring the history and achievements of great Americans. But behind the federal face of official Washington, there is a real city with distinctive neighborhoods filled with passionate citizens living their lives. For this 5 x 5 project, Fung Collaboratives has curated Nonuments, a temporary sculpture park featuring “monuments” devoted not to the great but to ordinary people, to the ideals of democracy, and to the common struggles of humanity. Artists: Jonathan Fung, Cameron Hockenson, Peter Hutchinson, Naranjo-Morse, Jennifer Wen Ma. Local partners are Washington Project for the Arts and the Phillips Collection.
