Carter, wife visit Airport exhibit
By Staff Writers

President Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, visited his exhibit, “Jimmy Carter:
Georgia’s Native Son,” at Hartsfield-Jackson for the first time on August 16.

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, interim Aviation General Manager Robert Kennedy, and Airport Art Program managers David Vogt and Katherine Marbury hosted the Carters as they viewed the exhibit. The former president shared personal and political anecdotes with the mayor and offered tips about his strategy for tough negotiations.

“It was an honor to join President and Mrs. Carter as they experienced this unique exhibit for the first time and shared highlights of their extraordinary lives and work on behalf of our nation and the world,” Reed said. “I am pleased that through this collaboration with the Carter Center and the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum, nearly 250,000 daily passengers at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport will have the opportunity to learn more about this great American president and world leader from the state of Georgia.”

A photographer and a videographer accompanied the Carters to document their reactions to the exhibit. To hear Carter’s insights on the artifacts, watch the video posted below.

“Jimmy Carter: Georgia’s Native Son” will be displayed through July 2011 in the walkway that connects the main security area and Concourse T. To see photos of the exhibit, click here.
