Beautiful art by Alicia LaChance on the floor I never noticed before as you disembark at C Gates at St. Louis Lambert International Airport. In true Missouri vernacular fashion, information about the piece can be found on the airport’s website under “Art at the Airport.” Doesn’t get any simpler than that.
“Our shared modernity and new velocities influence this installation. It is rooted in tradition and ancient folk art from around the globe. Shared colors between cultures anchor this design while aiming for an interior feeling descriptive of what lies in front of us – our future. Symbols and patterns from these folk histories come together to raise a curiosity about a new sense of community. Now, YOU ARE HERE moving through heartland and international crossroads. This composition invites travelers to cross over the spoke where hearts point toward true north.”
There’s a great installation shot a few images in over on LaChance’s website for this series.
