Description

Art of the Airport Tower is a photographic journey to airports around the world. Smithsonian photographer Carolyn Russo explores the varied forms and functions of air traffic control towers throughout aviation history, making these ordinary structures extraordinary: more than mere aviation artifacts, they are monumental abstractions, symbols of cultural expression, and testimonies of technological change. The exhibition brings a heightened awareness to the architectural beauty and historical significance of these structures.

CONTENT
50 large-format framed photographs, 50 text labels to accompany each photograph describing the airport history and/or tower description. 6 text panels/essays: title panel, introduction, air traffic controllers, airport codes, artist statement, and historical overview.

SUPPLEMENTS
Educational activity material developed by NASM Education Department, exhibition script, sample press release, images for press.
