New Lambert Airport Art Includes Work by UMSL's PPRC Photo Project Director
Along with new shops and restaurants, new artwork by Mel Watkin will greet passengers flying into or out of the C Concourse at Lambert–St. Louis International Airport.
Watkin is the director of the Public Policy Research Center Photography Project at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. Her work, “Mimic,” is one of nine permanent three-panel glass screen installations designed by St. Louis-area artists for the A and C concourses at the airport.
“Mimic” features three dwarf cypress trees – one for each panel. Each tree is surrounded by a halo of luna moths.
