From the Department of Parks and Recreation:

“Visual artist Kiril Jeliazkov and DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) unveiled “The Orange Step,” a one of a kind open air art installation consisting of 128 individual canvases, each 22 feet high and 11 feet wide at DPR’s Rose Park in Georgetown [26th and O Streets, NW.] The exhibit will run through June 7.

“The majority of our recreation centers have art throughout each facility,” said DPR Director Keith A. Anderson. “The opportunity to add such vibrant splashes of color to our green space was appealing and we hope people far and wide will come to enjoy this huge art display.”

The exhibit was created to show the connection between man-made art and nature with the overarching idea that art is for everyone, according to Kiril.

This is not the first stop for “The Orange Step,” the exhibit has taken place in Bulgaria, Georgia, Florida, and California before being displayed along Rose Park and various streets in the Nation’s Capital. The entire exhibition is scattered all across Rose Park in Georgetown and Massachusetts Avenue near the Saint Sophia Greek Church. [Mass Ave, Fulton and 36th street NW

The water-based paintings are painted on a special vinyl. The vinyl is designed to resist external exposure from sunlight and harsh weather conditions. Each painting is stretched on a structure especially built for this purpose.”
