Fresh art at Miami Airport; peppy music at DCA

The newest exhibition at Miami International Airport is called Reinventing the Landscape and includes traditional and contemporary paintings of environments ranging from the Florida Everglades and Colombian botanical gardens to isolated habitats in the southeastern United States.

Look for work by Elisabeth Condon, Nancy Friedemann, Mark Messersmith, G. Mirta Paula, Paul Sierra and Elizabeth Thompson in MIA’s Central Terminal Gallery, Concourse E, just past the security checkpoint.

And thanks to Greg Mamary from the American Association of Airport Executives, who was kind enough to snap and send along this photo of the marching band he encountered recently at Reagan Washington National Airport during an employee pep rally/customer service initiative kick-off.

“They had a high school marching band that played, danced and sang through the entire length of the ‘new’ terminal. It was great to see passengers’ reactions.”
