Fresh art at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport

Not only does Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) have a new food truck alley – MSP has unveiled ‘Northern Luminescence,’ – new commissioned works of art.

The works – installed at Terminal 2-Humphrey between gates 10 and 14 – were created by Minnesota artists Stacia Goodman, Philip Noyed and Danny Saathoff and, the airport says, are designed to capture the power of the Aurora Borealis in glass tile, electric color and kinetic sculpture.

Take a look:

Fresh – folded – art at Denver International Airport

The newest art exhibit at Denver International Airport features a zoo’s worth of miniature to life-size origami animals made by noted origami artists from around the world.

The intricate artwork is made using a variety of different mediums, including paper, of course, but also copper and canvas. Look for this exhibit in the Terminal Gallery on level 5 west of the Jeppesen Terminal, near the north security checkpoint through September.

Here are some more images of the artwork, courtesy of Denver International Airport

 

Greek diner opens at Pittsburgh Int’l Airport

 

 

I’m a big fan of diners – real diners. And from the looks of it, the Marathon Diner that just opened in the AirMall’s Center Core food court at Pittsburgh International Airport is pretty close to the real thing,

Promising “diner food with a Greek flair,” the new eatery  pays homage to the owner’s grandfather, who operated the Marathon Restaurant in downtown Pittsburgh during the 1930s.

On the menu: the Marathon Gyro, Greek Burger, Greek Lemon Chicken Soup made in-house from a traditional family recipe, rice pudding and “My Big Fat Greek Omelet.”

 

While you’re at Pittsburgh International Airport, check out their art collection , which includes Robert Fraley’s Robot Repair, a mobile by Alexander Calder, exhibits about Andy Warhol and Mister Rogers and other fun stuff.

And take a moment to appreciate terrazzo floor.
