Art of Airport Exhibit

Art of the Airport Tower
Takes you on a photographic journey to airports in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific. Smithsonian photographer Carolyn Russo explores varied forms and functions of air traffic control towers and interprets them as monumental abstractions, symbols of cultural expression, and testimonies of technological change. These 50 images bring a heightened awareness to the simple beauty of the airport tower and a call for their preservation in the airport landscape. On exhibit through March 10.
