“Even when silvery fish after fish comes back belly up, and the country plummets into a crepitating crater of hatred, isn’t there still something singing?”
--from “The Leash” by Ada Limón (The Leash by Ada Limón | Poetry Foundation)
Washington Sculptors Group is pleased to join The Kreeger Museum in presenting Still Something Singing, on view from October 21, 2023 - January 27, 2024. Sited throughout the grounds of the museum, this exhibition of outdoor sculpture and temporary installations reflects the role of art in our contemporary moment. The exhibition was juried and curated by Betsy Johnson, Assistant Curator, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, presenting the work of eight DC-area artists: Adam Bradley, Donna Cameron, Roger Cutler, Hyunsuk Erickson, Barbara Liotta, Donna McCullough, Maryanne Pollock, and Steve Wanna.
This exhibition is presented under The Collaborative, a program developed by The Kreeger Museum in 2021 to support Washington-area artists.

One of the greatest legacies of David and Carmen Kreeger is the Museum that bears their name. In 1959, The Kreegers began to amass a formidable collection of modern art. For the next fifteen years they assembled most of the Museum’s holdings. The collection reflects the spirit of David and Carmen Kreeger who agreed on every piece they purchased –their approach to collecting was a personal one –they bought what they loved.
The Kreeger’s focus on 19th and 20th century paintings is evidenced by works by Monet, Picasso, Braque, Stella, Mitchell, and Frankenthaler, among others. Also included in the permanent collection are works by prominent Washington artists, including William Christenberry, Gene Davis, Sam Gilliam, Simmie Knox, and Paul Reed. Outstanding examples of African and Asian art are integrated in gallery spaces on both levels. Designed in 1963 by Philip Johnson and Richard Foster, the travertine-clad building sits on five acres and is surrounded by sculpture gardens and terraces.
Designed in 1963 by Philip Johnson and Richard Foster, the Kreeger residence was built on five and a half wooded acres overlooking the nation’s capital. The Kreegers were pillars of the Washington DC arts and cultural community, and their love of art, music and architecture resound throughout the building today.
