'Kaino's Arch' to Arrive at Pittsburgh International
Airport authority commissions a piece of public art to sit on airport grounds.
The Allegheny County Airport Authority has approved the placement of a piece of public art at the landside terminal at Pittsburgh International Airport.
The sculpture, titled "Arch" and constructed by artist Glenn Kaino, is undergoing renovations and will be placed at the terminal by June 2013, where it will serve as a welcoming site for the Pittsburgh-hosted Americans for the Arts conference next summer, according to an airport statement.
The sculpture, which is meant to depict Pittsburgh's industrial past and growing high-tech business sector, was commissioned by the Andy Warhol Museum in honor of Pittsburgh's 250th anniversary in 2008.
The sculpture has been dismantled from his original location in Pittsburgh's Cultural District and will be housed indoors during the winter season.
Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the name of the sculpture. It is "Arch" by Glenn Kaino, not "Arches" as previously reported.
