Crowd sourcing Give Me a Vote hand locations

“I’m trying to crowd source any remaining locations of the Give Me a Vote hands. I’ve heard there were at some point around 30 located throughout DC but some don’t actually exist any longer. Anyone know of locations for sure that these exist?

Read more about the hands here.

I’ve been able to confirm the location of four (11 & V [2 hands], 14 & U NW, 12 & M NW). There are 4 places I know there were hands but haven’t been able to get that way to confirm if they still exist (2301 11th St NW, 13 & G ST SE, 219 50th St SE, and one on 4th st SE but cross street unknown).

Can anyone confirm any of the locations above or point me in the direction of some I may have missed? I wrote to the artist group but they don’t have a list of where the installations exist and are excited to find out what I come up with.”

  • There is one in the Marion Street Garden – 1500 block of Marion Street, NW

  • There’s a hand something like this (not sure if it’s exactly the same) on N Street between 30th and 31st (in Georgetown), on the north side of the street. Always wondered what that was all about…

  • There is one at 11th & Florida (maybe that ‘s the 2301 11th st one).

  • The artist is Peter Krsko, who happens to have a solo show up at my gallery through this Saturday (info on my website). These hands are awesome, and took a lot of work to make, and were made in small medium and large sizes!

  • Isn’t there one on 12th St just north of M? Possibly the one pictures, actually.

  • I believe there is one at a private residence in Forest Hills, on Linnean Ave. between Garrison and Fessenden.

  • My wife and I saw one while we were walking our dog in Forest Hills last weekend. I believe it was on Linnean Avenue but I can’t remember for sure.

    • Actually it might have been Fessenden NW. It was somewhere within the Fessenden-Linnean-36th triangle.

      • Didn’t see Crouton’s post…he/she is probably right about the specific location. It was at a private residence.

  • I have a hand in my yard on the 700 block of Varnum. It’s weather worn and could some sprucing up with paint – but I’m still proud of it. The inspiration came from my neighbor around the corner on 8th Street – they had their hand up first. And isn’t there one on the roof of The Diner?

  • There are also these:
    4215 8th street nw dc
    Nalle Elementary School – 50th and C Street SE
    743 varnum street nw
    3711 morrison street nw
    5005 linnean ave nw
    5140 linnean terrace nw
    1212 12th street nw
    busboys and poets on 14th street nw
