This week’s featured #EmployeeSpotlight is Sandy in our Capital Construction Services Division! She has been with DGS for eight years as the Percent for Art Program Manager. Sandy’s passion for the arts, love for the District and ingenuity has enabled the District to amass an incomparable art collection which is beautifully displayed across all 8 wards.

When the pandemic hit, Sandy developed an App to facilitate the program 100% virtually. This ensured that all ongoing projects would still be delivered with artwork. This virtual platform has also increased the access to the Percent for Art Program. Artists from all backgrounds and locations can now participate.

From her strategic vision to her expertise, we’re #DGSProud of Sandy and her contributions! Thank you, Sandy, for all your hard work and commitment! #dcdgs

#DGSBuilds!

Earlier today we cut the ribbon with @mayor_bowser at Eastern Market Metro Plaza and Park in #Ward6!

Due to the allocation of funding in different fiscal years, the project was divided into Phase 1 and Phase 2. Phase 1 was completed in May 2020 that features playgrounds for children ages 2-5 and 5-12, a shade structure within the playground area, a splash pad, a boardwalk and lawn, bioretention, and standard park amenities.

Phase 2 includes a library plaza featuring a pavilion for events/gatherings, a bosque area shaded, bioretentions, and standard park amenities and more!

Stay tuned for the #DGSPercentforArt installations coming this Fall.

As @cmcharlesallen often notes, the goal was to convert this space from a park that you walk through to a park that you walk to.

This project could have been completed without DGS PM Diego Martinez + Cassidy Mullen, our client agency partner @dcdpr, our collaborating partners at @ddot and all the community stakeholders involved who attended meetings and remained engaged from the start to finish!

Huge thanks to our architect, construction, engineering, and landscaping partners!

Thanks @moyadesignpartners @keystoneplusdc @landdesigninc @amt.llc and Brailsford & Dunlavey and all the vendors involved!

#DGSDelievers! We are proud to announce the completion of the new DC Department of Parks and Recreation Woody Ward Recreation Center, formerly known as Benning Park.

“Woody Ward spent many years serving his community. Woody made this park a special place for the youth and I am honored to have worked with him when I was director at DPR. It is absolutely fitting for this site to be named after someone who – regularly inspired others through sport and fitness, so that they could grow and become better versions of themselves. From DGS – we hope that with these renovations, the new woody ward recreation center will continue his mission of changing lives in a positive way for many years to come.” — DGS Director Keith Anderson

Amenities Include:
🌱Installing two bio-retention ponds for storm water management with our partners @doee_dc �🥊State-of-the-art competition-size Boxing Ring�🏋🏽‍♀️Updated fitness center with new workout equipment�💃🏽Brand New Dance Room�🎨Upgraded Art & Creativity room
🏀Multipurpose room and so much more!�
This project could not have been completed and delivered without DGS Project Manager Margaret Thacker, the CCSD Project Team, @dcdpr Project Manager Peter Nohrden, our architect Moody Nolan and construction partners Chiaramonte Construction Company and the #Ward7 community!

Huge thank you to ANC Commissioner Ebbon Allen and everyone who advocated for the official name change and designation, we could have not done this project without your advocacy and feedback!

This week we recognize artist Cheryl Wing- Zi Wong (@cherylwzw) photo credit is hers who curated and completed the art installation of the ‘PORTAL’ as apart of Jefferson Middle School Modernization project.

The inspiration for the artwork from the artists is below ⬇️

PORTAL, finally unveiled…

PORTAL is a site-specific permanent public artwork installed at the front entrance of Jefferson Middle School. This pair of two constellations of 16 vibrantly colored steel arches are enwrapped with empowering quotations. PORTAL pays homage to the building’s historical legacy as a DC public library through this curated selection of quotes from important literary and cultural figures of color. PORTAL invites students, teachers, community members and passersby to observe, to participate, to dialogue.

Gratitude to @sandybellamy_dgspercent4art @dcdgs for the commission.

A few favorite quotes from the western-side arches:

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
- Barack Obama

“When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.”
- John Lewis

“Love isn't about what we did yesterday; it's about what we do today and tomorrow and the day after.”
- Grace Lee Boggs

"All that you touch you Change. All that you Change Changes you. The only lasting truth is Change."
- Octavia Butler

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!

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."
