According to Embassy.org:
“The memorial garden, dedicated in 1991, was a project of the Kahlil Gibran Centennial Foundation, established in 1983 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the poet’s birth in Besherre, Lebanon.”
It is a stunning memorial located right near Rock Creek Park. It’s quite large and in addition to the sculpture, has fountains, benches and inscribed quotes by the poet. I highly recommend checking it out next time you’re in the area. It could be a great relaxing reading spot for sure. I absolutely love stumbling upon sights like this.
