The Capitol Hill Arts Workshop is collecting final votes for the name of the grasshopper sculpture hung on a signpost at 7th and G streets SE.

The 40-inch-long work made of PVC foam was created by artist Carolina Mayorga as part of the Capitol Hill Alphabet Animal Art Project, which placed a koala, an emu and more on streetlights and signposts in the area.

Locals submitted names for the grasshopper and then voted on the top three: CHAWmper, Mr. Hopper and Gauguin.

Votes are being accepted through Oct. 30 on CHAW’s Facebook and Twitter pages, at CHAW’s front desk at 545 7th St. SE and by emailing [email protected].

The winning name will be announced during the HILLoween festivities on Oct. 31. The sculpture will get its name at 6:30, after trick-or-treating begins at 5:30 p.m. The full HILLoween schedule is available here.
