Take a Garden Stroll in Washington, D.C.

Open year-round, the National Gallery Sculpture Garden on the National Mall features works from the Gallery’s growing collection as well as loans for special exhibitions. One of the most iconic pieces in the collection — and the perfect backdrop for selfie-taking couples — is the Spanish-language version of Robert Indiana’s LOVE sculpture, AMOR. Other must-see works of art are Louise Bourgeois’ Spider, Roy Lichtenstein’s House 1, and Roxy Paine’s Graft. The garden is a great place to stroll and people watch. You’ll find native American canopy trees, flowering trees, shrubs, ground covers, and perennials; a fountain, which serves as an ice rink in winter; and walking and seating areas to rest and reflect on the artwork.
