En route to the 2007 Mayoral Inauguration and City Council's Swearing-In at the Washington Conventer Center I'd come across an abstract piece of artwork, entitled Many Things, by Sam Gilliam amongst the center's art collection. Who I am surprised that I had never heard of but having seen Many Things and then checking the internet I certainly will delve more into Sam Gilliam and his art.
"Entering Sam Gilliam's U Street studio--so discreet that the only entrance is an unmarked loading dock off a narrow alley--is like walking into a kaleidoscope." Susan Bauer reports in an October 2005 Washingtonian article entitled Five Washington Artists.
Something tells me, that I will soon be returning to U Street.
