DC High Water Mark Project
Scope:Urban design, public art
Client:
DC Department of Energy and Environment
Budget:
$58,000
Completed:
Late summer 2019

In 2018, DC's Department of Energy and Environment issued a grant to develop a creative treatment to the city's high water mark signage—useful, yet generally mundane, markers  denoting historic and projected flood elevations. Curry Hackett is collaborating with artist and educator Patrick McDonough to design a suite of spectacular sculptures and signage intended to promote the public awareness of flood risk.

Currently, sites are being identified for this project. It is expected to be delivered by September 2019.
