Joy Taylor

Airport art inspires marriage proposal

Here are some images from a cool site-specific art installation currently at New York’s Albany International Airport.

Joy Taylor’s Dream of Flight fills three soaring ceiling wells and is made from 240 shimmering, oversized, blue, gold and green foil leaves that give the illusion of falling

According to Sharon Bates, the Director of the Art & Culture Program at Albany International Airport, the piece really captivated one young woman passing through the airport with her boyfriend on their way to a cruise. So instead of waiting to propose to her at sea as planned, the boyfriend dropped to one knee and proposed right there.

I bet she said yes.

Joy Taylor’s Dream of Flight is on the second floor of Concourse B at Albany International Airport through 2010.
