Peak Bloom in Washington, DC is a very real thing. A cherry blossom tree in full flower signifies much more than just the end of Winter: it’s an annual and visual celebration of one of this city’s points of pride. The cherry blossom trees on the National Mall were a 1912 gift of friendship from the People of Japan to the People of the United States.
Artist Robin Bell of Bell Visuals paid tribute this year with a weekend of public art and projections; his blossom-inspired, original artwork was in full bloom across the 110-year-old facade of the LINE DC. We were honored to be the canvas.
