“Different and not known”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

I loved the look of this memorial. The only downside was there was kids climbing all over it so to take a picture i had to grab one before another kid jumped on. This is a great dedication to an awesome man, it should be better known so that more can enjoy it. It is in a great location so be sure to spread the word!

“Hidden treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

One of the best little gems in DC. You must walk around the sculpture to see a few quotes from the philosophizing scientist.

“Bubble Gum Statue”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
