Western Art on T Gates Corridor
By Triphenya Bailey
If you are an enthusiast for America’s westward expansion, horseback riding, re-runs of “Bonanza” or movies featuring John Wayne, you will probably get a kick out of an exhibit recently installed by the Atlanta Airport Art Program.
The Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Ga. has loaned a rich collection of oil paintings, sculptures, presidential memorabilia and rustic Western images to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport for its arts program.
The exhibit is located in the entrance and exit corridor of Concourse T, just beyond the security checkpoint station. Vibrant images of “the cowboy at work, rest and play” as well as artwork centered around the themes of the Modern West, Civil War, Reel West, First Peoples, Symbols and Presidential Letters will be on display for the next 12 months.
