    Einstein Memorial

    by IngaRita Written Feb 10, 2008

    I just think this statue is cool. Its on the side of the Mall and if you're at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial check it out. It is located in front of the National Academy of Sciences off of Constitution between 21st and 22nd.

    There's a big bronze statue of Albert Einstein very near the National Academy of Sciences. It's pretty much across from the Washington mall, and a very short 5 minute walk from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

    He's holding in his had a sheet of paper, with his 3 most famous expressions...Equivalence of energy and matter (E=MC2), theory of relativity, and Photoelectric effect.

    LOCATION:
    Constitution Ave. & 22nd St NW (N of Const, E of 22nd (Nat'l Academy of Sciences))

    Einstein and Kentbein

    Another sculpture that is not well known and is great for photo ops is the 12-foot sculpture of Albert Einstein seated on a bench in front of the National Academy of Sciences.

    Constructed in 1979, it was designed by sculptor Robert Berks and financed by over 5,000 contributors to commemorate the centennial of the birth of the great scientist.

    Washington Monumnet

    Several years ago the Washington Monumnet was undegoing repair/restoration. While they were doing the work they "accidently" created a work of art in it's own right!
