Washington, Pennsylvania: Washington and Jefferson: Lords of the Dance

A bronze statue of side-by-side Presidents #1 and #3, arms outstretched, hands on each other's backs, makes it look as if they're concluding some kind of choreographed 18th century quadrille. Sculpted by Alan Cottrill.

Washington and Jefferson.

Statues of Washington and Jefferson

Washington and Jefferson College is a small liberal arts institution in Washington, Pennsylvania. It was founded as two schools, Washington College and Jefferson College, but because of low enrollment after the Civil War the two schools combined.

Large statues of both presidents were commissioned and installed in 2006. They were created by Ohio artist Alan Cottrill and each is about 13 feet tall.

We've always enjoyed this statue because it looks as if George and Tom are about to dance at the regency ball.
