Let’s talk about Three Indeterminate Lines, a new public art sculpture here at the airport. The sculpture is located between Terminals 1 and 2 on a grassy traffic island. Have you seen it? Look for it next time you drive or walk by.
The piece is actually one of 13 large-scale sculptures installed around San Diego as a collaborative monumental exhibition by renowned French artist Bernar Venet, in cooperation with the Port of San Diego.
In addition to the piece at the airport, other sculptures can be found at San Diego locations such as the intersection of Harbor Drive and Laurel Street (just before getting to the airport from downtown), the San Diego Museum of Art and the Omni Hotel. The exhibit will be in place through October 31, 2009.
These numerous art figures make up a giant metropolitan sculpture garden, and I think it’s great that the airport can be a part of it! After all, the mission of the Airport Art Program includes enhancing customer service by engaging travelers in innovative, memorable and considerate experiences. I’d say this historic, high-caliber exhibition sure qualifies!
As always, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and art is open to interpretation … especially public art. This particular sculpture has generated a lot of buzz from airport employees.
