Lynda Benglis, "Nalia," 1982, welded bronze, 116 x 59 x 30 inches, Leo W. O'Brien Federal Building, 1 Clinton Square, Albany, New York.

GSA commissioned artist Lynda Benglis to create this bronze sculpture for the courtyard of the federal building in Albany.

The surface of the sculpture comprises a patchwork of undulating bands of textured metal. The meandering, ribbon-like form that traverses the center of the sculpture resembles the path of a river, like the nearby Hudson.

Despite the monumental appearance of "Nalia," Benglis developed its thin, shield-like form partly in response to the weight limits of the plaza.

The 10-inch-tall, brass-and-copper presentation model for "Nalia" that Benglis made in 1981 is preserved in the collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

An exhibition of Benglis's groundbreaking and influential work is on view at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., through January 2, 2022. A virtual tour of the exhibition is also available on the museum's website.

The 206,000 gross square feet building is comprised of a reinforced concrete frame, with exterior consisting of precast concrete panels above the first floor and limestone veneer on the lower levels. The building was designed and is currently being used as a combined courthouse and office building. The primary use of the building is to house the Courts and Court related functions.

Happy #MuralMonday! Peter Hurd painted this expansive mural for the Terminal Annex Federal Building in Dallas, Texas, in 1940. He won a national design competition that had attracted 149 artists, and for his winning entry chose to depict a scene of early Texas history: pioneers building a homestead, gathering water and cooking.

Peter Hurd, “Pioneer Homebuilders,” 1940, fresco painting, 100 x 236 inches, Terminal Annex Federal Building, 207 S. Houston Street, Dallas, Texas.

Our #FirstFriday highlight is Jenny Holzer and her commission “For the FDA” from 2012. On a series of benches, she inscribed excerpts from an internal FDA survey. Removed from its original context, each inscription takes on a new meaning, which begs the question: Are words truly set in stone?

Jenny Holzer, “For the FDA,” 2012 (granite, stainless steel and epoxy), 16 benches, each 26 x 17 x 84 inches, White Oak Federal Research Center, 10903 New Hampshire Avenue, Silver Spring, Maryland.

Claes Oldenburg, "Batcolumn," 1977, painted steel and aluminum, height 101 feet, Harold Washington Social Security Center, 600 West Madison Street, Chicago, Illinois.

For a GSA commission to create a public sculpture in Chicago, artist Claes Oldenburg selected the baseball bat as an emblem of the city's ambition and vitality.

The sculpture’s soaring verticality echoes Chicago's dramatic skyline, while its form and scale allude to historical civic monuments, such as obelisks and memorial columns.

The artwork's diamond-patterned structural lattice comprises 1,608 pieces of welded steel, and was inspired in part by the cross-bracing of a gigantic construction crane that Oldenburg saw during a visit to the building site in 1976.

GSA Fleet Innovation Branch recently worked with the Crane Army Ammunition Activity (CAAA) fleet of 251 eligible leased vehicles to provide telematics service, which uses telecommunications technology to send, receive, and store data connected with fleet vehicles.

The GSA Fleet Telematics Program serves as one of many benefits we give to federal customers who lease vehicles from GSA Fleet. Using telematics gives agencies enhanced insight into fuel consumption, establishes vehicle use patterns, and encourages different driving behaviors — all of which can improve fleet performance.
