Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden project receives preliminary approval

June 2019

We are happy to announce that on May 16 the Commission of Fine Arts in Washington DC unanimously voted to approve the preliminary design of the garden revitalization.
The National Capital Planning Commission followed suit on June 6. The concept approval from both agencies was critically important and allows us to move into the the main design phase which we hope to complete by the end of next year.
