Another Lincoln County visitor to Washington DC finds stunning Rick Bartow sculpture outside Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian

Lincoln County District Attorney Rob Bovett is visiting Washington DC this week, and stopped off to see the recently placed twin carved poles produced by Newport Native American artist Rick Bartow. His twenty foot sculptures, adorned with animals and other symbols of Native American animism, stand guard outside as well as welcome visitors to the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian opposite the Washington Monument overlooking the National Mall on Jefferson Avenue.

Bartow’s skyward-reaching sculpture is entitled “We Were Always Here,” a Native American prayer of physical and spiritual rootedness in a land of immigrants. His work was ordered and commissioned by the staff of the Smithsonian Institution which, in the eyes of many, is an honor of many lifetimes, confirming the timelessness of his work.
