The District of Columbia’s most prestigious neighborhood used tax money to commission a work of art honoring Hillary Clinton.
The artwork, titled “Red, White, and Hillary Blue Diamonds,” consists of five aluminum frames illuminated by LED lights. The diamond-shaped structures are installed in three locations, where they serve “as gateways into Georgetown.”
The installations are “dedicated to former Senator Hillary Clinton, who is the beacon of dignity and guiding light, as a thank you for her strength as we move forward,” according to a placard next to the art.
The diamonds are part of Georgetown GLOW, an exhibition of glowing art commissioned for the holiday season by the Georgetown Business Improvement District.
The Georgetown BID is a non-profit corporation that has taxing authority over local businesses and works to promote the area’s commercial district. The GLOW exhibition was partially funded by a grant from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
