Sponsored by NSSGA, you can now watch a live video feed of a 6-acre “facescape” created for the National Mall and available for viewing October 1st-31st. The 10-by-6-acre landscape portrait is by Cuban American artist Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada and was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery. Titled “Out of Many, One,” the facescape is situated between the WWII and Lincoln Memorials and required 2,000 tons of sand provided by NSSGA member Chaney Enterprises based in Gambrills, Md. The project is sustainable to the land as the sand and soil used will be tilled back into the ground. The full project can be viewed from the top of the Washington Monument or through NSSGA’s sponsored livestream.
