(Corrected at 2:34 p.m.) The intersection of 19th and L streets NW might soon look a little more artistic.

Golden Triangle BID says it seeks to install some new temporary sculptures meant to compliment the rain gardens that already occupy the small park at the intersection.

“We live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world,” Golden Triangle BID Executive Director Leona Agouridis said. “The sculptures will take a spot that is already gorgeous and make it even better yet.”

“Since the sculptures will require a foundation to attach to, we are applying for a permit for those foundations,” adds Agouridis. “We are working with a local curator to identify artists and sculptures with the idea that we would install new pieces every 6-12 months.”

Agouridis says she expects the request to build the foundations to be approved by the District Department of Transportation some time between late summer and early fall.
