Art of The Airport Tower
June 10 - September 17
This exhibit explores the varied forms and functions of airport traffic control towers in the U.S. and around the world. The exhibit is composed of photographs by Smithsonian photographer Carolyn Russo, who traveled to 85 airports in 23 countries to capture images of these towers. The photos interpret the towers as monumental abstractions, symbols of cultural expression, and testimonies of technological change.
This special exhibition at Tellus Science Museum is sponsored by the Smithsonian Affliations office; and made possible by the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, Air Traffic Control Association, Harris Corp., Rockwell Collins, Saab and Thales, and by in-kind support from Epson America Inc. and Manfrotto.
