“Bubble Gum Statue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

This statue of old Einstein & the one of JFK in the Kennedy Center seem to be the work of sculptor who used bubble gum to create his images. However, despite my dislike for this "bubblicious" artwork it is a fun thing to view.

“a peaceful memorial off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

As a local, I take the monuments across town for granted...but this one is tucked away off the beaten path and is a peaceful respite in a busy city.

“Poor Einstein”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

He looks neither inspired nor inspiring! I don't like the pose, the facial expression, or the texture.
