Sky Harbor featuring Arizona flowers exhibition
PHOENIX -- Interested in checking out some art this weekend?
You can do so by walking through Sky Harbor International Airport. It's one of the homes of the Phoenix Airport Museum.
No, it doesn't feature paintings of airplanes. Arizona flowers are now the focus of the "Full Bloom" exhibits that are on display.
"The work is in all of the display cases as you enter and exit concourses, which is real fun. There are eight (cases) of them," said museum curator Lennie Eller.
Exhibits from 28 Arizona artists being displayed, and Eller said the artwork is diverse.
"We have everything from gorgeous quilts, to ceramic work, to photographs, to painting and sculpture," Eller said.
She added she's pretty happy with what's on display.
"It's amazing how you can take a simple subject and make it so diverse, and so interesting and so complex," said Eller.
The Musical Instrument Museum is also preparing a display that will soon be available for viewing in Terminal 4.
Eller said that Sky Harbor isn't the only Valley airport where you can see Phoenix Airport Museum exhibits.
"It's also at Deer Valley and Goodyear. It's at the rental car center and Terminals 2, 3 and 4 at Sky Harbor."
You can also check out part of the exbition on the Sky Train as you make your way to and from Phoenix's busiest airport.
