During this season of traveling, I thought this was a relevant bit of art news - airport art. I'm not talking about the art of airports (i.e. the architectural wonders of airports like Washington Dulles or Raleigh Durham's new Terminal 2), rather the art in airports. CNN dropped this little article highlighting 5 airports across the country that have remarkable art collections for the weary traveler's pleasure. In order, we have:
1. Denver International Airport
2. Sacramento International Airport
3. Miami International Airport
4. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
5. Philadelphia International Airport
MSN.com/Travel created a similar list. Check it out here.
From my travels, I would also like to add the Detroit Metropolitan Airport. It may not be the best art, but the unexpected delight of seeing something interesting while whizzing through Detroit of all places ranks it high in my opinion.
What are some of your favorite airports with art? Or notable pieces of art in airports?
