The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority has just announced two temporary exhibits to be hosted at each individual Washington Airport.
Two new exhibits at Ronald Reagan Washington National and Washington Dulles International airports aim to engage travelers with vibrant, colorful works of art. The exhibits, part of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Arts Program, will be on display until May 30.
At Reagan National Airport “Color of Joy: An International Perspective” showcases art from around the world, using color in a variety of styles. Travelers will see vibrant, collages, abstract, mixed-media and other artistic expressions. The paintings of flowers, landscapes and geometric patterns are grouped according to color palates, designed to draw passengers to the works of art.
“Down By the River” is a featured exhibit at Washington Dulles International Airport in the Gateway Gallery, located in the connecting walkway between the AeroTrain C-Gates and the C Concourse.
The exhibit is a photographic display of the natural beauty along the Potomac River. Various photos provide a glimpse into the waterway that captivated travelers during colonial times and draws modern-day explorers to the metropolitan area. “Down By the River” highlights features found along the course of the river and captures them in snapshots taken in West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia.
The art at Reagan Airport will be housed in the walkway path to Terminal A (which is a far walk from the other terminals and outside of security).
The art at Dulles will be between the train stop for Terminal C and the actual terminal, which I believe is within security.
