Along with the launch of HOME & DESIGN, the year 1999 witnessed another local event in the world of design: the opening of the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden. An elegant yet informal space, the Sculpture Garden is a six-acre oasis of native American plant species including canopy and flowering trees, shrubs and perennials. Seventeen sculptures, on loan and from the Gallery’s collection, dot the grounds, including works by Claes Oldenburg and Joan Miró. Pictured above, Alexander Calder's Cheval Rouge (Red Horse) provides a sense of the eclectic art on view. A picturesque fountain at the Garden’s center serves as an ice rink in winter; the nearby Pavilion Café has indoor as well as outdoor seating. Open year-round, the Sculpture Garden is located at 7th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW. www.nga.gov.
