Nashville International Airport’s (BNA) Board of Commissioners recently approved a dynamic public artwork to suspend from the ceiling of the airport’s new Concourse D when it opens this summer. The installation, titled “Lyrical Journeys,” will be a permanent addition to BNA’s public art collection to be enjoyed by the airport’s more than 17 million passengers annually.
“Lyrical Journeys” was designed by RE:site Studio’s Shane Allbritton and Norman Lee (Houston, Texas) as a playful homage to the sights and sounds of Nashville. The interactive light sculpture will be suspended over the food and retail hub of BNA’s new Concourse D, adding aesthetic beauty with cascading rhythms of meandering light.
“BNA has a longstanding tradition of investing in impactful public art, and we are proud to add ‘Lyrical Journeys’ to our collection for all of our passengers to enjoy,” said Doug Kreulen, BNA president and CEO. “We congratulate the artists, Shane Allbritton and Norman Lee, on being selected for this public art project, and we look forward to unveiling this dramatic sculpture when Concourse D opens next summer.”
