Passengers Walking All Over ATL’s Newest Artwork

The newest art exhibit at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International is on the floor.

Mosaic tile exhibits have landed in the centerpoints of Concourses A, B and C–an 1850s map of the city traced with a labyrinth on Concourse A, a spinning airplane propeller on Concourse B and an image of Stone Mountain on Concourse C.

“We are very excited to reveal these mosaic art pieces, which help establish a sense of place for passengers walking through the airport,” says Katherine Marbury, art program manager. “Although Atlanta is a relatively young city, these images remind travelers of the city’s humble beginnings, its connection to aviation and the original appearance of one of our most famous natural landmarks.”

The designs were created by talented local artists. Cheryl Goldsleger designed “Atlanta Labyrinth” (Concourse A); Anita Arliss did “Propulsion” (Concourse B); and Donald Cooper created “Mountain of Stone” (Concourse C). Stephen Miotto Mosaics, a New York-based company, made the tile pieces at its studios in Italy.

“The airport art program is always exploring new, creative and exciting ways to enhance the facility through art,” Marbury says. “We hope passengers will continue to be amazed at the works that lie in front of, above and – now – beneath them.”

Canine customers have a new place to “go” now that the airport has opened an off-leash dog park.

The fully fenced facility opened Nov. 18 and features flowers, grass, rocks, benches and two original pieces of art for the dogs to sniff and enjoy.

“The dog park is a good step forward in serving our customers traveling with dogs,” says Kathryn Masters, airside/landside area manager and project manager for the dog park.

Biodegradable bags are available at the dog park for pet waste.
The 1,000-square-foot dog park is part of the Ground Transportation center on the west end of the passenger terminal. `Only two dogs are allowed in the dog park at a time because of the area’s size.
