bearing witness


Created by artist Martin Puryear, this 40 foot hammer-formed bronze sculpture sits on Woodrow Wilson Plaza, just west of the plaza’s 13th Street axis. The height of Bearing Witness draws the viewer from Pennsylvania Avenue through a sequence of spaces into the plaza. The surrounding buildings’ arches are reflected in the work’s curved top.
