The Arts Come Alive at Nashville International Airport10.25.2005
NASHVILLE — - Created in 1988 by the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority, Arts at the Airport is an ever-growing, ever-changing showcase of cultural diversity and creative talent in Tennessee. The terminal and surrounding facilities at Nashville International Airport were designed to incorporate rotating public art exhibits and permanent acquisitions.
Arts at the Airport is not limited to visual art. Because music is an integral part of Nashville, the arts come alive daily with musical performances located on three stages in the passenger terminal. Performances feature a variety of musical styles including traditional and contemporary country, rhythm and blues, pop, gospel and bluegrass.
Current exhibitions of artwork include 15-foot aluminum mobile sculptures entitled "Dancing on Air," lumetric sculpture entitled "Arpeggio," an interactive play and rest area for kids of all ages featuring whimsical mosaic sculptures called "Flights of Fantasy," and tin can art in the Fine Dining Area.
Nashville International Airport takes great pride in showcasing the Middle Tennessee region's visual and performing arts. Arts at the Airport receives funding from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission, the Tennessee Arts Commission, the Memorial Foundation and other grant-giving organizations to provide a comprehensive arts program in the terminal.
