Artists share their work with travelers
How many times have you been walking through an airport and noticed the art in display cases and on the walls, but just hurried on by?
While some of the art installations in airports are by local students, others are commissioned works by professional artists. In Charleston, SC travelers are treated to seagrass baskets from the renowned artist, Mary Jackson. In Atlanta, GA, I recently saw the work of Robin Price for the first time.
The art in airports has been growing in stature as airports have become larger with more luxury stores and services for travelers. One really never knows what you will see or whose work will be on display. Even though you certainly have somewhere to be, and sometimes very little time to get there, pause for a moment to enjoy the artwork in the airport.
