Happy Friday! Here are some travel tidbits we’ve been keeping in the inbox all week
Fresh murals at Charlotte Douglas Int’l Airport
CLT Airport is greeting passengers on Concourse C with four new murals by two local artists
Amy Bagwell’s two murals “Our Days” at gates C4 and C7 were inspired by her travels through the airport.
And Ruth Ava Lyons’ “Interplay I” and “Interplay II” at gates C10 and C15 focus on the wonder of the natural world and issues surrounding the delicately balanced constellation of ecosystems worldwide.
The Places We’ll Go: World Chess Hall of Fame
We’re making lists of places we’ll go once we can go places.
On the list: The World Chess Hall of Fame, in St. Louis, MO.
Not only is the World Chess Hall of Fame home to the World’s Largest Chess Piece (20 feet tall), but through May 16, 2021, the museum is hosting an exhibit of work by Keith Haring. In addition to Haring’s works and photographs of the artist, the exhibit includes bespoke street art chess sets from Purling London and newly-commissioned pieces by Saint Louis artists, all paying homage to the late pop culture icon.
