The Awakening Sculpture in Washington, DC by J. Seward Johnson

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 09, 2012
We are in a Washington, DC mood this week, obviously, and perhaps the locales there knew about J. Seward Johnson's amazing The Awakening sculpture, but we just learned of it. The 70 foot sculpture has been around since 1980, and was selected for the International Sculpture Conference Exhibition. The piece is made of aluminum, with much buried under the surface.Of course, the parts that are visible make the piece that much more dramatic.

A graduate of LISAA (Paris) and Saint Luc (Tournai, Belgium), she is currently studying at Gobelins in Paris.
