True to its name, the Arts District Hyattsville development has its own public art.

EYA, the developers behind the west side of the project, installed a sculpture in 2011 on a courtyard off Longfellow Street.

Called “Trinity,” the 80-by-60-inch stainless steel sculpture was created by North Carolina artist Michael Baker.

Baker has had public art installed around the country, including a piece in Alexandria, Va.

The sculpture was selected by EYA from a group selected by Artists Circle Fine Art, a Maryland company that helps businesses find art.

“We presented a portfolio of a dozen or so various sculptures that were the appropriate size and budget for the project,” explained Artists Circle project manager Katie Giganti in an email. “Unlike galleries, we don’t represent a specific pool of artists.  For each project we go out and find the art/artist that is the right answer for the space.”

The sculpture was installed last May after Baker drove it up from North Carolina.

    Ryan, thanks for this! Always good to know the origin of art, especially art in the neighborhood that you see daily.

    Thanks HW! We’ll add this to our Public Art Locator (now online, though our website will be having a full refresh in a week, almost done!)
