Work by a Maryland-based artist may soon be on display at the Gallery Place-Chinatown rail station. A Metro board of directors committee preliminarily accepted the donation of the piece by Martha Jackson-Jarvis. According to a statement, the piece would be installed at the entrance at Seventh and F streets next spring.
Metro said the Chinatown Community Cultural Center, Target, Pepco and the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities are paying for the art and its installation. Metro will have to pay a "nominal annual cost" for cleaning.
Metro's board of directors is scheduled to vote on the issue July 22.
