#DGSPercentforArt- Artist Spotlight!

This week we recognize artist Ai Qiu Hopen who created the art installation of the ‘Shine the light, Statue to Ida B. Wells’ at Ida B. Wells Middle School in #Ward4.

Check out her statement below behind the inspiration for the artwork!

“Honoring Ida B Well's undaunted courage standing up for justice against racism in the capital city of the Lincoln and MLK Monuments. Represents hope to inspire each of us to shine as light for justice.”

This amazing art installation created by Ai Qiu Hopen @sculptorwriter would not have been possible without the DGS Percent for Art Program Manager Sandy Bellamy, Irving Development LLC, and Architecture Inc who assisted with the design and construction.

✂️The Capitol Hill Montessori at Logan is FINISHED! Located in #Ward6, the facility has sustainable technologies while fusing modern architectural features into its historic nature!
 
The priority for the project was to maintain the historic main entry and innovative spaces, with a focus on the outdoor classroom spaces and new play areas, including a rooftop turf play area.

The renovation nearly doubles the existing school building, allowing the school to grow by an additional 100 students to accommodate almost 500 students of the 2025-2026 school year!
 
Unique amenities include an Outdoor play space is maximized with a rooftop turf field. Primary and lower elementary classrooms all have dedicated outdoor rooms that act as extensions of the learning space and so much more!
 
Kudos to our Capital Construction project team, DGS Project Manager Marcus H., client-agency @dcpublicshcools, General Contractors @mcnbuild and Architects @rmcarchitects + StudioMB and all involved who saw this project from design to completion. We could not have done this work without our partners!

#DGSPercentforArt- Artist Spotlight! 🎨🖼

This week we recognize artist Alex Pentek who created the art installation of the 'Unity' as a part of the Houston Elementary School Modernization project in #Ward7. Read to learn about the inspiration for the artwork!

'Unity' is a 16ft tall stainless steel Allium flower symbolizing the achievements of black activist Charles Hamilton Houston. In Floriography, the Allium flower signifies unity and staying true to one's principles in times of adversity. Made from a sphere mathematically divided into 482 flowers, the work uses sacred geometry to reflect the mathematics of nature and ideas of an integrated world that Charles Houston believed in and worked to create.

This astonishing art installation created by Alex would not have been possible without fabricators, Red Pepper Forge, the DGS Percent for Art Program Manager Sandy Bellamy, MCN Build+ Cox Graae + Spack Architects who assisted with the installation.

Stay tuned as we highlight more #PercentForArt artists and their pieces throughout facilities we build, maintain, and sustain across the District.

08/30/2021

✂️Started the First Day of School celebrating the opening of The NEW Eliot-Hine Middle School! Located in #Ward6, consisted of four buildings totaling approximately 158,000 square feet of space. The original building was constructed in 1931, with additions constructed in 1936 and 1961. Although the buildings are adjoining, the 1961 additions encountered some operational challenges. 
 
The modernization project designed and constructed a right-sized unified building that has true community presence in the Capitol Hill area. The 1961 buildings were demolished, replaced by a new addition that will better connect the campus with ADA accessibility. The other buildings were renovated and restored to its historic nature, bringing its unique character to the forefront.  
 
With a design capacity to serve 480 students, Eliot-Hine is modernized to reflect 21st Century Learning environment guidelines and educational and programmatic space needs specified in DCPS Educational Specifications. The building will meet or exceed sustainability guidelines for LEED - Gold Certification!
 
The school modernization also consists of the following amenities:
🏀State of the art Gymnasium
🎭Modern Theater
⚽️ field, and so much more!

🙌🏾 Kudos to our Capital Construction Project team, client-agency @dcpublicschools General Contractors @turner_midatlantic Architect @perkinseastman.washington and all involved who saw this project from design to completion. We could not have done this work without our partners!

Spot award for Ms. Jenkins at DCDGS who was very professional and totally customer forward today in getting piled up garbage removed from Congress Height Recreation Center. This level of customer service restores my faith in DC Gov't.
It Is Just About Sun Worship. Did You Know That Cathedrals Are Designed So Congregations Can Face East For Sun Worship? Christmas Is Also About Sun Worship Which Is Why It Is Celebrated In December, And Children Are Lied To Which Causes Long-Term Effects!
Pres charges on Lakita Morrison and Chai Tea
Does anyone have information about security camera placement and what model numbers and manufacturer's DGS, DPR and PSD uses for parks and recreation centers?
I am a contractor and a Senior Project Manager working to design and build and ultimately, maintain parks and recreation centers for the Department of Parks and Recreation. I have been quietly pleased with everyone's professionalism, dedication and passion. That includes full-time DC employees and their contractor colleagues.
I'm not sure who to thank, but I just got the newsletter from the DC Office of Tax and Revenue and was pleased to see one of the changes to taxes are, "Feminine hygiene products: The sale of feminine hygiene products is exempt from sales and use taxes." Well done DC!! Thanks Muriel Bowser! Way to remove the "pink tax."
