Capitolsaurus Chasing a Falcarius
The “Capitalsaurus Chasing a Falcarius”, located at First and F Streets SE, Washington, DC, is part of the Alphabet Animal Artwork Project commissioned by Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, through money provided by The District of Columbia Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the District of Columbia Department of Transportation. At the intersection of two streets, the piece celebrates two dinosaurs, portraying the carnivorous Capitalsaurus chasing the feathered and flightless Falcarius. The Capitalsaurus is of particular significance to Washington D.C. In 1898 bones of this dinosaur – also known as Creosaurus Potens--—were discovered while excavating for sewage piping.
