'Wind Me Up, Chuck' Interactive Sculptures to Be Installed in Chuck Brown Memorial Park

Mayor Vincent C. Gray and the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities announce today the selection of local artist Jackie L. Braitman to create a permanent art installation that celebrates the life of musician Chuck Brown. Braitman proposes to create an interactive sculpture that reflects Chuck Brown's force of personality, echoes the "call and response"inclusiveness of Go-Go music and evokes the captivating rhythms of the Caribbean-inspired Funk music. The Chuck Brown Memorial Park broke ground last year.
