We recently spent far too many hours in the Greenville-Spartanburg (South Carolina) airport, but that situation lead to the discovery of this artwork in one of the terminals.
This is a metal “quilt” by artist Evelyn Rosenberg. She has done other metal works that look like fiber art, and you can see pictures of a number of them by clicking on her name or here to link to her website. (The website has better pictures than mine.)
As you can see, this work consists of a number of blocks making up 3 panels. I’ve made pictures of each individual panel, shown below.
Here are a couple of the individual blocks, showing a little more of how the blocks are made and the quilt is sewn together with metal cables. I really enjoyed seeing this, so if you find yourself in the Greenville-Spartanburg airport, check it out 😉
It certainly was time well spent. Thank you for your post. I had not heard of this artist. Amazing, beautiful work!
I love that there’s always something interesting to learn, even in the airport 🤓
Oh my goodness – I love discovering and looking at art exhibits in airports. This is how I like to spend down time in airports (if not blogging, reading or getting a snack between flights)! Usually no one else is looking at the exhibit and it is like you get to have it all to yourself! (I have posted a couple art exhibits discovered at airports in the past). Thanks enjoyed vicariously seeing this exhibit on this talented artist!
I always hope to minimize time in airports, but they do have interesting art when I can’t. I’ll watch for airport posts from your next trip 😀
This is neat! We happen to have family and friends in that area, so it isn’t far-fetched to think we would be there at some time. Thanks for posting about it .
If you ever come to Greenville, we can meet in Asheville, about an hour from Greenville and 80 minutes from me 😄
