Terminal 2 at RDU now open for business

Raleigh-Durham International Airport’s new Terminal 2 has officially opened for business.

The terminal’s art and architecture reflects North Carolina’s Research Triangle Region and includes 26 restaurants and shops, including 2nd Edition Book Sellers, änders Natural Soap Co., 42nd St. Oyster Bar, Carolina Ale House and Brookwood Farms BBQ, and Taste! A Southern Season.

Here’s a link to more information about RDU’s new Terminal 2, including details about artwork such as  Lydia Rubio’s aluminum and steel ‘tree,’ titled Gate of Earth, that begins outside and appears to be growing into the terminal.

“The artwork considers feelings associated with leaving or returning home or traveling into the world. Traditional North Carolina symbols – trees and birds – are combined with the words of North Carolina writer Thomas Wolfe.

Can’t wait to see it!
