M Flats in Crystal City

"I love working on projects when there is a theme involved!" says Sr. Associate Katie Giganti, shortly after wrapping up a recent installation for M Flats, a multifamily building in Crystal City. "In this case the designer came to us with the concept; the project site was so close to various methods of transportation: the airport, metro, and roads that they felt it was only natural for those conditions to drive the art. We sourced mostly local artists for the project, all whose work - whether more literal or abstract - responded to movement and transportation."

 Artists Circle also custom-created these wall-mounted street grid maps (one of DC and one of Crystal City). The sculptures were laser cut out of steel with standoff hardware added on the back to project them from the wall.
