Art in the Airport

Seeing as I will be at there tomorrow morning I thought I'd share this! It's a pretty cool idea for Knoxville, and really shows the growing arts movement in East Tennessee. The airport is really tiny with only about 10 gates, so the idea of having an art gallery in this space is pretty interesting and awesome. I love that it totally breaks the generalization that the airport portrayed before with rocking chairs and a fountain with bear statues.

  1. if you've ever taken the orange line to or from midway, there's a nice series of large mural in the walkway from the airport to the el. done by urban gateways, i believe. i like the notion of an airport gallery. wouldn't it be great if there could be ways to liven the individual gates too?
