DC has its fair share of public art, but we put together a list of some pieces that you might not have noticed while running errands or walking the dog. Perhaps you've seen the Big Chair outside Duke Ellington School Of The Arts, but did you ever catch sight of an image of Duke Ellington spray painted onto the sidewalk leading up to the chair? Or how about the headless statues in the Sculpture Garden? Click through to see a few more examples of unsung artistry in the city. In case you're visiting any of the other Curbed cities over the holidays, click over to those sites for a similar feature happening now.
