Bridge art coming to Pittsburgh Airport

A intriguing piece of public art, Glenn Kaino’s Arch, will soon be on display inside Pittsburgh International Airport, most likely in the Landside Terminal.

The work is a transformer/robot made up of pieces that look like Pittsburgh’s bridges and was originally located in Downtown Pittsburgh’s Cultural District, evidently as a temporary installation celebrating the city’s 250th anniversary. Now the work will be moved inside.

Arches should be happy at PIT airport, which already has a good deal of artwork, including an Andy Warhol Museum exhibit, and – last time I checked – an Alexander Calder mobile titled Pittsburgh, a model of a T Rex that is about 15 feet high and 30 feet long and a shrine to Mister Rogers.
