Fresh art at Philadelphia and Miami airports

Next time you’re going to or through Philadelphia International Airport, take a moment to look around at some of the new art on display in the terminals.

Noted American glassblower Michael Schunke has some of his work in Terminal D:

James Dupree’s Evolving Elements is in Terminal E:

And Shannon Donovan’s Rest Awhile, a life-size diorama of an old-fashioned sitting room, is in Terminal C.

There is the appearance that little has changed over the generations,” notes Leah Douglas, PHL’s Director of Exhibitions, “However, Donovan has purposefully infused her interior with odd curiosities such as three-dimensional branches and blossoms that emerge from the floral patterned wallpaper, ceramic cakes and flowering clay hubcap forms that adorn the wall and floor.”

When you’re in Miami International Airport’s North Terminal, take a moment to look at the faces in 100 Latinos Miami.

The exhibit, by Gate D26, features portraits of Hispanic immigrants living in Miami-Dade County. There are artists, activists, entrepreneurs, athletes, journalists, doctors and professors; all people Verónica Durán chose to include here because “by virtue of their talent and success [they] contribute to the economic, social and cultural development of the region.”
