Rent a car; see great art at the airport

I thought I knew Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, my home-base airport, pretty well.

It was the first airport where I spent a night sleeping on the floor, and I’ve spent many an official and unofficial hour poking around its nooks and crannies.

But I haven’t taken the time to jump on the shuttle bus and go out to the consolidated rental car center facility, which opened in 2012.

Look what I was missing:

Linda Beaumont’s “Spinning Our Wheels,” is made up of 91 six-foot tall very colorful steel discs. And then, there’s Buster Simpson’s “Carbon Veil,” which is made up of two helices covered with a stainless steel mesh fabric.
