An Imaginary Tour of Pennsylvania Avenue

Pennsylvania Avenue Two Men Playing Chess

Instead, you find a life-size sculpture of two old men sitting by the side of the park playing chess. Lloyd Lillie made this sculpture. You and your friends take turns snapping pictures of each other pretending to tell the old man on the right, the one about to make a move, where to put his knight.

This statue of two men playing chess sits along a walk in Marshall Park, named after John Marshall, who served as Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1801 to 1835.  An unknown passerby placed a scarf around the neck of the man on the right.
