Highwire Travelers

Location: Terminal 1 Bag Claim
Artist: Gordon Huether
Installation: February 2014

Highwire Travelers is suspended above the Terminal 1 bag claim lobby. The sculpture takes a whimsical approach to mimicking common airport scenes.

The sculpture is comprised of seven abstract figures. A few are on tightropes high above the terminal floor balancing luggage on long poles. Others are sitting on beams lower to the floor, incorporating the building’s architecture into the piece.
