City Fields

Monday June 22, 2015

Herds of deer and swooping hawks have come into the heart of Washington, DC as City Fields by Rachel Schmidt was installed on May 18th along 5th & K Streets, NW. Commissioned and sponsored by the MVT CID, Boston Properties, Steuart Investment and MarcParc, this 160 foot-long collage uses photographs from five major cities around the world (including the MVT neighborhood) to represent the changing nature of cities and a futuristic vision of how urban cityscapes might interact with local wildlife species. The community is invited to meet the artist at the MVT FRESHFARM Farm Stand on Saturday, June 27th and September 26th from 10 am to 1 pm.  More photos of City Fields are available on our Flickr page and media coverage can be read at the Washington Business Journal and East City Art.
