These 173 jars are filled with paint, each color matching the exterior walls of a federal building or monument surrounding the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The installation maps out the neighborhood, with each jar installed according to the corresponding building's location. The jars are sandblasted with the commercial name of each color from the paint manufacturer. The title of the piece is a quotation from the nineteenth-century American sculptor Horatio Greenough, which describes the dark red color of the stone used for the Smithsonian Institution building in Washington DC. This work was exhibited in the 1989 Biennial of the Whitney Museum of American Art.
