Relax

Flight Paths by Steve Waldeck
Transportation Mall between Concourses A and B
You don’t have to wait until reaching your final destination to start posting to the ‘gram. The airport is dotted with exceedingly photogenic locations, and the most Instagrammed of them all is Flight Paths, an installation by Chicago artist Steve Waldeck. To find it, skip the Plane Train and walk through the hallway that connects Concourses A and B. You’ll become immersed in a sculptural installation meant to evoke a forest environment teeming with bird song. Waldeck’s piece makes a parallel between the airport’s buzzing activity and serene, natural systems.

T Gallery

T Walk across from Gates T12-T16

In great art galleries, the work on display is never static. It’s the same at Hartsfield-Jackson’s T display cases — large displays incorporated into the main corridors on Concourse T adjacent to the South security checkpoint — where exhibits rotate throughout the year. At the centerpoint of Concourse T, one thing is certain: visitors can always find exhibitions of student artwork from Georgia’s elementary, middle and high schools as part of ATL’s partnership with the Georgia Art Education Association.

 

“Zimbabwe Sculpture: A Tradition in Stone”

Transportation mall between concourses T and A

Twenty monolithic stone sculptures guide pedestrians along the walkway between concourses A and T. Created by 12 of Zimbabwe’s best-known artists, the African sculptures are examples of the modern Shona sculpture movement. Though the sculptures are imposing in size, their subjects are tender. In “Welcome Baby,” Agnes Nyanhongo carves a mother and child from the same stone, while Tapfuma Gutsa’s “Galactic Dancer” depicts a woman moving in time with nature.

 

“A Walk Through Atlanta History”

Transportation mall between concourses B and C

Welcome to this unique multimedia installation that provides a glimpse into the rich history of the City of Atlanta. Approaching from Concourse B, your journey starts with a section devoted to the Native peoples who lived here for thousands of years, progresses through six key time periods, and ends with Atlanta’s entry onto the global stage. The installation includes short poetic videos, large wall graphics, and detailed reader rails that further tell the story of Atlanta. Enjoy the installation on the move or stay for hours.

 

“John Lewis – Good Trouble”

Walkway between the Domestic Terminal atrium and arrivals hall

In 1960, civil rights legend John Lewis became one of the 13 original Freedom Riders. In 1965, he was beaten during a peaceful protest for voting rights. In 1986, he was elected to Congress. And in 2011, then-President Barack Obama awarded Rep. Lewis the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the nation. That medal, along with dozens of other artifacts from Lewis’ life, can be viewed in the “John Lewis – Good Trouble” exhibit near the Airport Domestic Terminal atrium.
