Description

In 2007, the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities’, DC Creates! Public Art Program commissioned public artist Thomas Sayre of Clearscapes Architecture and Art firm in Raleigh, North Carolina to design, fabricate and install Curve Ball. On the eastern garage façade eighteen stainless steel baseballs follow the trajectory of a curving fast ball pitch. The remaining twelve baseballs on the western garage facade illustrate the straight and higher-angled trajectory of the same ball as it is hit by the batter. The baseballs are lit with energy efficient LED lights. The lights are programmed to correspond with the excitement and drama of the baseball game.
