WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - Vice President Kamala Harris’ historic electoral victory marks another milestone for women – and D.C.'s Wharf neighborhood on Monday unveiled an outdoor crochet installation honoring her in celebration of International Women’s Day.
Harris is the first woman, and the first woman of color, to be elected Vice President.
A Howard University graduate, Harris served as District Attorney for San Francisco and then-Attorney General of California before running for the Senate.
The piece featuring Harris – which is on the outer wall of Officina – is 40 feet wide and 20 feet tall.
The piece at the Wharf was created by Los Angeles-based artist London Kaye.
Kaye’s work includes murals in Times Square and a school bus wrap for The Gap.
