Doug Aitkin's Song 1 at the Hirshhorn

Artist Doug Aiken's projection installation, Song 1
on the façade of the donut-shaped Hirshhorn Museum in DC opened last night.
The work is a looped video installation of many people singing "I Only Have Eyes for You." It's very atmospheric and finally brings some art that enlivens the somewhat strange shape of the museum's exterior.
I heard him speak and then got to see the installation. It's beautiful. If you're in DC definitely come down to the National Mall after dusk (projection runs nightly until midnight).
