The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) in Washington, D.C., has announced that Niki de Saint Phalle will be the inaugural artist for the New York Avenue Sculpture Project, “a dynamic new space that will enhance D.C.’s public art profile by featuring changing installations of contemporary works by women.”

“Her vibrant works celebrate women, children, heroes, diversity and love,” says the NMWA press release. Four of Niki’s sculptures will be installed on the 1200 block of New York Avenue in front of the museum. NMWA will dedicate this first phase of the sculpture project on 28 April 2010.
