A few months ago, a local resident was shocked to discover a huge sculpture of a woman with a giant butterfly perched on her head.
Then she noticed another woman standing next to it, holding her arm and asking for directions to the sculpture.
The sculpture was located at the corner of Third and D streets NW.
A year ago, she was in the neighborhood again and noticed the sculpture had been moved to another location.
When she asked for directions, she received an odd response.
“You can’t go to the next location,” the resident replied.
“She’s in the middle of a war zone.”
“That’s not true,” the woman responded.
“The war zone is just over there.”
“She is,” the man replied.
“They are all over the city, and I have to move her.
She is a part of the city.”
The woman then told the resident to leave.
She didn’t know what to do.
“This is our home,” the lady said.
The woman did not want to leave the sculpture alone.
So, she and a friend went to the National Gallery of Art, and the staff told her to take the sculpture back to her apartment, where it would be removed.
It is there that we found out that the woman had made it her mission to make sure it is returned to her.
In a recent interview, the artist described her work as an “adventure of human interaction,” a quest to “advance human knowledge and culture through a range of art forms.”
Chernobel is a sculpture in a sculpture garden that was commissioned in 2017 by the U.S. Navy.
She was designed by American artist and artist of sculpture Peter Fenton.
She has been a fixture in D.T.A. installations for years.
In 2016, Chernobel was a centerpiece in the new Washington Monument, where the U and W are inscribed with a star and arrow.
In 2019, Chernomel was featured in a bronze sculpture in the Capitol Rotunda.
The bronze sculpture was commissioned by the DNI to commemorate the death of the late Robert M. Gates Jr., a retired Navy officer and the third-highest ranking civilian in U.N. history.
Chernomel was commissioned to honor Gates and memorialize the work of Gates’ son, Michael, who died in 2009 at age 66.
“I just really wanted to honor him and his legacy,” Chernofel said.
“When I was young, he was a real icon in our lives.
When he died, I knew I had to make something to honor his legacy.
So I was just so proud to be part of it.”
Chernopel said the work has evolved from her initial concept to a more permanent installation.
“At first, it was a little bit of a dream, but then I thought, ‘Wow, I can do this,'” she said.
Chernobal is a “living, breathing sculpture,” she said, and “this sculpture is not going anywhere.”
In the sculpture garden, a sculpture called The Dancer, created by Italian sculptor Stefano Corleone, is located, and it is a work of art in itself.
“Stefano Corluan is a brilliant artist, a master of the medium,” Chernobelfel said of Corleones work.
Corleoni’s work, which was commissioned for the National Zoo and the National Aquarium, has been viewed by more than 2 million people.
In 2014, Chernos sculpture was unveiled in the United Kingdom.
Chernomels sculpture is located at a site where she was commissioned as a baby, which is where she has lived for most of her life.
She said she has always been interested in the art of art, but was not sure if her passion was ready to mature into a career.
“We have all been in art education for a long time, and that’s what I wanted to do,” Cherney said.
She had been in the private school system for many years, but wanted to get into the art world to “give back” and become “more of an artist than just a student.”
Cherney has been in D;T; and the private art schools in Washington.
She hopes that the work will serve as an example for other art students and young adults.
“If you think you are just going to become a sculptor, you don’t know the value of the craft,” she explained.
“My hope is that this will be a place where we can have conversations about how to become artists, and also inspire others to pursue their passions.
That’s what art is all about.”
Chernon and Chernobile said that the sculpture was meant to be a symbol of her and the work.
“It’s a tribute to her,” Chernon said.
