Albert Einstein Memorial

The Albert Einstein Memorial is located on Constitution Ave. in Washington D.C. near the Vietnam Memorial inbetween the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial.

The memorial has been there since 1979 and the statue itself weighs four tons!  If the finish of the sculpture looks familiar to you, it may be because it was done by Robert Berks who also did the bust of John F. Kennedy that is at the Kennedy Center.

I took these pictures last September when I stumbled upon the memorial.  I didn't even know it existed until I found it!
