Art without borders
Hartsfield-Jackson expands ‘universal’ exhibit into the Atrium
By DeAllous Smith

It’s true that the universe is expanding — at least at the world’s most efficient airport.

In partnership with Agnes Scott College’s Dalton Gallery of Art, the Airport Art Program will blast its astronomy art show beyond the borders of the concourses and into the Atrium.

The exploration starts on September 11, as Hartsfield-Jackson showcases works from 14 local artists, whose images are inspired by the study of the planets, stars and other celestial objects. 

The new show expands the current exhibit, “From Earth to the Universe,” which simulates a journey from Earth to the outer limits of our galaxy with a collection of astronomical images in the Transportation Mall. 

“The entire astronomy showcase is breathtaking,” said Katherine Marbury, Airport Art Program manager. “With the addition of our new exhibit, we’re presenting two views of the universe: a purely empirical, scientific view, supplemented with subjective, intuitive visions by local artists.”

The exhibit will be on display through November 18.

“We’re continuing to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy at Hartsfield-Jackson,”
Marbury added. “And now individuals dropping off or picking up passengers can join in on the festivities.”
