‘Art of the Airport Tower’ is on exhibit at Tellus Science Museum. The exhibition is composed of 50 photographs by Smithsonian photographer Carolyn Russo and explores the varied forms and functions of airport traffic control towers in the U.S. and around the world. The exhibit opened in June and will remain on display at Tellus Science Museum until Sept. 17. Tellus will host Russo on Friday, July 14, for the exhibition opening reception. The famed photographer will be on hand to sign copies of her book, available for purchase in the Tellus Store. At 7 p.m., she will present a lecture discussing her seven-year journey around the world to capture the 100 stunning photos featured in her book. Russo traveled to 85 airports in 23 countries to capture images of these towers. The exhibition is sponsored by the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, Air Traffic Control Association, Harris Corp., Rockwell Collins, Saab and Thales. Epson America Inc. and Manfrotto provided in-kind support. “Art of the Airport Tower” premiered at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. from November 2015 through November 2016. The exhibition is on tour through January 2020. For more information about the exhibition, visit airandspace.si.edu/exhibitions/airport-towers.
