Arts at the Airport - Public Art at SFO Terminal 2

SFO Terminal 2 - New control tower
I don't get to fly out of Terminal 2 of the San Francisco International Airport. So when I got a chance last week, I did a little site seeing and took photos.  

Here are the public art found at SFO's Terminal 2. I hope you enjoy this short virtual tour.

I was traveling for a business trip to Austin and flew out of SFO's Terminal 2. I usually fly out of the International terminal or Terminals 1 or 3 but seldom out of Terminal 2. So when I found out I was flying out of Terminal 2 for this business trip, I made a plan to go to the airport a bit earlier so I can site see and check out Terminal 2.

Here is the new control tower near Terminal 2.

Here's an artsy colored net by Janet Echelman giving me that illusion that they are coming out of the skylights.

Here the closer look and details of the artsy net.

I don't know the designer of these chairs but I like them.

This artsy vase caught my eyes not only because it is artsy but it has the greetings writing in different languages. Mabuhay!

I'm sure I didn't capture all the different public arts in Terminal 2. I hope you enjoyed the virtual tour.
