Southwest Florida International Airport has changed a bit since the last time I was through. There a some fresh shops and food outlets, but the big change is this giant sculpture called Dawn’s Forest by Louise Nevelson.
The 3.3. ton multimillion-dollar white wooden work was last at the Naples Philharmonic Center, which has loaned it – likely for good – to the airport.
It’s also likely that most people don’t even realize it’s a sculpture. Seating is set up inside the main geometric component of the work, creating a bright, living-room-like space that appears to be well-used.
