Pink is easy. It could be anything from one of my bras, a girly cupcake
or frilly Barbie clothes. I have it in a million shades
of lipstick and blusher. I've given glittery pink shoes to my
nieces for Christmas. My swimsuit is a color called
"geranium." But a CDP Theme Day photo? Not one in sight.
I took a walk Friday afternoon along Massachusetts Avenue,
thinking that one of the old brick buildings might be an appropriately
sun-baked shade of brick, but they only brought to mind colors called
terre cotta or sienna. Then I saw this art installation at the corner
of Mass Ave and Park. Titled "Reclamation,"
the piece was created by artist Lesley Baker using
especially glazed brick, steel, and cement board.
Intended as a temporary public art project,
the piece has been in place since 2008.
