Jacksonville Aviation Authority Unveils New Public Art at JAX

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority and the Jacksonville International Airport Arts Commission are proud to present SKY BRIDGES, an aerial sculpture and the 13th addition to the JAA permanent art collection.

SKY BRIDGES, by artists Melanie Walker and George Peters of Airworks Studio, is now hanging from the ceiling of JAX’s newly renovated connector bridge. The aerial sculpture works with the architecture of the connector bridge to amplify the natural light in the bridge’s skylight areas. The arcs in the work relate to the air flight paths of take offs and landings and the structure is reminiscent of the many bridges which are landmarks in the Jacksonville area.  The forms literally float in the space by multiple thin suspension cables fanned toward the upper skylight beams.
