Another 2002 Party Animal Discovered

Oliphant Elephant
As a mate to Dream 2 and also located on 5th Street, SE, is Oliphan Elephant.

Kimberlyfaye was also able to provide an image from 2002 with the following information about this creation.

Inspired by the Portrait Gallery’s collection of political cartoons by famed illustrator Pat Oliphant, staff from the National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian American Art Museum spent numerous hours pasting photocopies of Oliphant’s drawings on the 150-pound polyurethane resin elephant.

  1. Awesome! I love that you’re finding these and pointing them out. I enjoyed them while they were here and photographed all but two of them. I know there are two on the GW campus as well. 🙂
