Take Your Pick and Vote for Your Favorite Airport Art
There’s all kind of great stuff to check out at the airport, but one thing that we may overlook is the airport art. We’re usually focused on restaurants, lounges, and WiFi access, but airport art is that little bit extra that keeps things classy within the concourse. There are others that agree, and the people over at 10Best and USA Today are now getting together to help pick out the very best in airport art—at least in the United States.
There are 20 airports from which to choose, and they’ve been selected for their unique takes on decorating the terminals. Entries from spots like Boston-Logan, San Francisco International, and Seattle-Tacoma are all available, and you can click on each to check out a photo and get a little background information. As for airport artwork snubs are concerned, we could suggest a few, including the lack of a nomination for the neat stuff over at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport.
Travelers are welcome to vote once a day for the next ten days or so, and winners will be announced on November 13. We’re pretty sure the lucky airport will receive a certificate, plaque, or other celebratory signage—but that’s probably it.
As far as our vote is concerned, we’ve got to go with that oversized, 56-foot-long, aluminum red rabbit sculpture—known as Leap. The thing towers above travelers within the main ticket hall at Sacramento International Airport. It’s so out of the ordinary that we just can’t ignore it’s presence, and to us, it’s got to be the winner. Partly because we feel that if we don’t vote for it—it’ll chase us down in our dreams.
