Escalator Riders Treated to Art Display at Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Convention Center art

Escalator riders at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., get to gaze upon the unique hanging sculptures of Donald Lipski. Part of the center’s US$4 million art collection, the mobiles create striking shapes out of everyday items such as barstools, bicycles, kayaks and tennis racquets. ELEVATOR WORLD visited the center recently for an interview with ThyssenKrupp Elevator CEO Andreas Schierenbeck, and came away very impressed by both the venue’s sleek, airy design by Thompson, Ventulett, Stainback & Associates of Atlanta, as well as the artwork. The escalators seen in this photo are by Fujitec America.
