My USA TODAY roundup column about some great art exhibits at airports right now generated lots of mail about artwork on display at other airports.
At the Tucson International Airport, five new art installations were part of a recent concourse renovation project. One piece, Another Way To Fly, by glass artist Tom Philabaum, is suspended from the ceiling in the Center Pointe, in the middle of the terminal on the ticketing level.
And two sculptures, Unzipped (below) and Closet Under the Stairs, by John Davis, are tucked under the stairs at the American and Northwest baggage claim belts.
Elsewhere in the airport, there’s a new Native American Gallery with work by tribal artists from southern Arizona, photographs by Tucson photographer David Burckhalter, and pieces from the airport’s collection of more than 75 works by regional artists.
And at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) there are two new exhibits: one features close to 50 paintings from the United States Air Force Art Collection; the other showcases prize-winning images from the annual Governor’s Cup Yacht Race professional photography competition.
