I really do love to travel….
So this week- my scheduled post coincided with a trip to Austin to see family. I tend to sketch on the plane, and love the freedom of nothing to do for a few hours. So Ibe thought led to another… and I thought of art and inspiration IN the airport! I checked the Philadelphia airport website- being familiar with their art exhibition program and found. Few things I was excited to see… These colorful and vibrant paintings spanned a long concourse walkway. I loved the shot with the fellow traveler for scale! This high contrast ceramic mural was lovely. I enjoyed it up close and at a distance- and I think my interaction with it caused others to take note. The felt exhibit I took a trek to another concourse to see- and I was so glad! When you are through security and have over an hour to boarding? I explored…Upon landing in Austin- I visit these ceramic tiles as if they are old friends. They showcase iconic Austin landmarks: the Capitol, the Congress St bats, the music industry, and blue bonnets!! ( I will research the artist. These are installed in the restrooms, no wall text per se.)
What sights and sounds inspire you when you travel?
I must apologize for the lack of artists links. I have included the names and info in picture form and will edit to add links asap. Sadly my vacation was marred by a spot of the flu and this post is the casualty. Stay tuned!
