Remember Robert Rauschenberg at Sea-Tac Airport

The art world is mourning the passing of Robert Rauschenberg, who died yesterday at age 82. He’s described in the New York Times as a “painter, photographer, printmaker, choreographer, onstage performer, set designer and, in later years, even a composer” who “defied the traditional idea that an artist stick to one medium or style”

Travelers flying through Seattle-Tacoma International Airport can pay their respects and see an example of Rauschenberg’s work at the “elbow” of Concourse C, just as you pass the Horizon gates and before you get to Gate C8.

The airport’s art collection includes Star Quarters, an intricate serigraph on mirror-coated Plexiglas.
