Folger's Shakespeare Library and Theater

Another aspect of this venerable institution is the art that adorns its deceptively austere facade.

 The Puck Fountain on the west side of the Library.
 The Shakespeare reliefs that line the north exposure celebrating 9 of the Bard's plays by John Gregory.

 Gregory's signature is only found carved in the final work.
 And you also have to love the Charles Rennie Mackintosh inspired Art Deco grillwork over the windows.
