Fresh art at Miami, St. Louis and Phoenix airports

This month my At the Airport column on USATODAY.com features a round-up of fresh art at airports around the country. I posted a few examples here yesterday. Here are some more.

Travelers can get a dose of the Everglades the only place where alligators and crocodiles co-exist in the wild at Miami International Airport, which is displaying 26 large-format photographs featuring the reserve’s wildlife and lush landscapes. The photos were taken by a half-dozen photographers who had the opportunity to live and work in the park’s subtropical environment for a month as part of the Everglades National Park’s Artist-in-Residence program.n You’ll find these in the international arrivals corridor in the North Terminal through December, 2011.

Lauren Adams: Coverlet Abstraction

Plenty of site-specific art will be part of the $50 million in renovations taking place at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport’s historic Terminal 1. Among the first commissioned pieces to be installed will be art glass screens with work by nine local artists featuring images that include eagles, soaring clouds, historic quilt patterns, local river paths and other images. Four art glass screens are being installed this month; five more screens will be installed this summer in Terminal 1.

"Spice Monkey"

Robert Brubaker’s ceramic, anthropomorphic animals are featured in a current exhibit at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport Terminal 3. Although the local weather rarely calls for such warm clothing, the birds, ram, monkey and other animals featured in Big Coats are wrapped in ceramic versions of brightly colored, woolen Western-style blanket coats.
