5th Annual “Art at the Airport” Installation and Reception

Laura Johnson and Tom Braaten

New Bern Now’s Radio Voice, Laura Johnson, met with Tom Braaten, Airport Director, to learn more about the upcoming Art at the Airport. Listen to the interview here:

Coastal Carolina Regional Airport, in partnership with the Sculpture Department at East Carolina University (ECU), is pleased to present the Fifth Sculpture Exhibition.

This event is part of a National “Art in the Airport” program, designed to enhance the travel experience and promote the arts. ECU students will address the “flight” theme.  A jury, including Airport Director Tom Braaten and officials, will review the models and select seven sculptures to be created for the show.

These seven sculptures will be at the Airport for approximately one year. One of the sculptures will be purchased by the Airport to become part of their public art collection.  The other six sculptures will be available for purchase, but will remain on display at the Airport until March 2014.

Installed accepted sculptures and reception will be on March 28, 2013 at 1pm. For more information, call the Coastal Carolina Regional Airport at 252-638-8591.
