Airports cater to art lovers with intriguing installations


The theme of flight figures into both the new permanent aerial sculpture and a temporary art installation at Florida's Jacksonville International Airport. The arcs in the site-specific Sky Bridges relate to the air-flight paths of takeoffs and landings, and to the many bridges in the Jacksonville area. The kites in Kites and Flights depict birds, insects, clouds, airplanes, balloons, rockets and other flying objects. Both projects are by Melanie Walker and George Peters.

Find it: Sky Bridges hangs from the ceiling of the airport's renovated connector bridge. Look for Kites and Flights in the Haskell Gallery in Jacksonville International Airport's courtyard through June 2011.
