Fresh art at Jacksonville International Airport

There’s a new aerial sculpture at Jacksonville International Airport (JAX).

Sky Bridges, by artists Melanie Walker and George Peters of Airworks Studio, hangs from the ceiling of JAX’s newly renovated connector bridge.

Kites and Flights, also by Walker and Peters, is on display in the airport’s Haskell Art Gallery through June 2011.

The exhibit uses kites to depict a variety of flying objects including birds, insects, leaves in the wind, clouds, airplanes, balloons and rockets.
