The next time you are at the Albany International Airport and checking in for a flight, look to your right to see this new large-scale work.
According to the Art and Culture Program at the Albany Airport:
The geometric patterns in this composition are based upon paper airplanes folded by employees throughout Albany International Airport who were invited to contribute to this project. After collecting the planes, the artist unfolded them and then traced their creases into this fifteen-part sequence. The white lines on varying shades of blue ground echo the contrails of jets as they cross the sky, or blueprint renderings for simple, elegant flying machines
A public reception for the current exhibition, Patterns of Engagement, will be Friday, Jan. 17, at 5:30pm, featuring work by the artists Tasha Depp, Adam Frelin, Rich Garrison, Jack Magai, Laini Nemett, Chris St. Cyr, Chris Victor, and Deborah Zlotsky.
