Poke around the Burlington International Airport website and you’ll find out about the free wireless Internet access, the free charging stations (in the North concourse only), the gift shops, the snack bars, and the pre-security One Flight Up Restaurant.
Sadly, you won’t find anything about the public art and changing exhibitions at the airport. For that, you’ll either need to actually be at the airport or get Sara Katz of Burlington City Arts to send you some pictures.
Yesterday, I posted some images of Sky Gates, the murals John Anderson made for four airport skylights. Ms. Katz was kind enough to send one more photo to share with you.
I also received this photo of Maple, Apple, Birch by Elizabeth Billings & Andrea Wasserman, along with a description of the installation that makes it – and Vermont – sound so very welcoming and inviting.
“Maple, Apple, Birch illustrates the Vermont landscape with hand-carved planks of red maple and panels of printed and woven birch veneer. The text is taken from contemporary poems by Cora Brooks of Chelsea and excerpts from the 1800’s diary of Harriet Warren Vail of Pomfret. The carved wooden panels of apple trees and poems, both past and present, depict a time and season that are fundamental to the legacy of Vermont.”
