Description

In 2003, William Wegman completed a photomural for the L’Enfant Plaza Metro Station. Wegman used two photographs of his weimaraner dogs in faux NASA space suits to create two 10-foot-in-diameter porcelain enamel circular photomurals to be installed on the interior walls at station entrances. Wegman, who is known for including his beloved canine companions in his works, combined his own personal flair with a theme relevant to the area.

The space scene was chosen for the L'Enfant Plaza station because of its close proximity to NASA Administrative Offices and the National Air and Space Museum, and the work was funded in part by the NASA Arts Program.

Location

Inside the L'enfant Metro Station (which is, not coincidentally, near NASA HQ). Take another look at those astronauts you see on the wall -- they're not human.
