Description

Epoch, an impressive and vibrant sculpture, seems to burst with energy on the corner outside the PEPCO headquarters. The monumental, abstract sculpture stands 25 feet high and was created by nationally renowned sculptor Albert Paley, who was commissioned by the DCCAH in 2004. PEPCO, which has a long history of supporting the arts, was an ideal place to install this work of art. As John Derrick, chairman of PEPCO, stated: “The area really is experiencing a spectacular renaissance and we are proud to be a part of it.” Edison Place, which is home to PEPCO, also has an important historical background: it was the first major office building in D.C. to be designed by a minority-owned architectural firm. Epoch thus represents the ever-evolving dynamic of the District. The sculpture also features poetry by Dolores Kendrick, the second African-American woman to have her poetry featured in a public art project.
