Another Stikman Captured

Stikman, 9th and ConstitutionI first noticed Stikman back on February 2oth, at the intersection of 17th and I.  On March 6th, I saw another one at 17th and Pennsylvania.  The one to the right is at the intersection of 9th and Constitution. Its nice to know I’m neither the only one who’s noticed them, nor the only one that is fascinated by them.

A reader brought an article to my attention from last September, in which the writer Stephan Lowman also got on the trail of Stickman, the apparent creation of a gorilla street artist that distributes him around the country. In the District, there may be as many as 150 of them scattered around.

So, having found three of them so far, I clearly have my work cut out for me. Fortunately, each time is see one, it brings a smile to my face and puts a little pep in my walk.

Nice WPA Relief

I like that when you explore part of the city looking for one thing, you often trip over something else. This relief sculpture is above the door of the Federal Trade Commission building at the northwest corner.Federal Trade Commission relief sculpture
