A 20-foot, stainless steel statue of jazz legend Duke Ellington was recently installed at Ellington Plaza in Northwest D.C.
The statue, titled “Encore,” was created by sculptor Zachary Oxman, a D.C. native.
Ellington is depicted sitting on a giant treble clef while playing a curved piano.
The statue is in front of the Howard Theatre at Florida Avenue and T Street NW.
The Shaw/Uptown area of the District was chosen as the site of the statue because Ellington spent his childhood and early years of his career in the neighborhood.
Oxman was commissioned to complete the piece by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
THE ARTIST: ZACHARY OXMAN
