Museum Monday: Louise Nevelson sculptures at airports

For years, this work by Louise Nevelson titled “Night Flight 1” has been on display at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

The work used to be in a very public part of the terminal but, while still accessible, is now located in the lobby area of the airport’s conference center on the south mezzanine.

Now another airport is going to get a work by this important artist.

Last week it was announced that Nevelson’s ‘Dawn Forest,’ a giant 12-piece abstract sculpture that weighs more than three tons and is owned by the Naples Museum of Art in Florida, will be loaned to the Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers for a two-year exhibit that should begin at the start of the busy winter holiday travel season.

Before Louise Nevelson’s ‘Dawn Forest’ was given to the Naples Museum of Art it was displayed at Georgia-Pacific’s Atlanta headquarters.
