The design for the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden was created by Laurie D. Olin, landscape architect, Olin Partnership, in association with key members of the National Gallery staff: Earl A. Powell III, director; Mark Leithauser, chief of design; Gordon Anson, senior lighting designer; James Grupe, senior architect; Carl Campioli, assistant senior architect; and Donald Hand, former chief of horticulture. The art was selected by the Gallery's director Earl A. Powell III; Alan Shestack, deputy director; and Marla Prather and Mark Rosenthal, former curators of twentieth-century art. Construction on the site was completed by the Chas H. Tompkins Company.
