|Duke Ellington sculpture|
Zachary Oxman (WTOP)
In the WTOP story, the sculptor, Zachary Oxman, describes the sculpture (pictured to the left) as follows: "[Ellington is] at the piano, but the piano itself turns into notes and moves up, almost like music. The G clef that he's sitting on is actually not your traditional G clef, but it's inspired like his actual handwriting."
The plaza is currently under construction by DDOT as part of the streetscape improvements surrounding the Howard Theatre.
