The Kreeger Museum in Foxhall is expanding its outdoor sculpture garden this month with a new installation by artist Sandra Muss, according to a release.

The new exhibit, called “Portals,” invites visitors to explore the wooded section of the museum’s 5.5-acre grounds. Muss has created seven stainless steel and mirrored columns, each 10 feet tall and wrapped in wire, that highlight the “mazelike arrangement” of the woods, the release says.

“Portals” will be a permanent fixture at the 2401 Foxhall Road NW museum, adding to previous installations in its sculpture garden. The new exhibit opens to the public on May 19.

Located in the former residence of Carmen and David Kreeger, the museum features 19th- and 20th-century paintings and sculpture, as well as examples of African and Asian art.
