We met Tampa Int’l Airport’s big flamingo

The Caught at The Airport arts workforce is a giant fan of huge artwork at airports.

And Tampa International Airport’s (TPA) big flamingo doesn’t disappoint.

The sculpture is 21 ft tall and lives in TPA’s most important terminal. The creation of artist Matthew Mazzota, the sculpture is formally titled “Residence.” However due to a naming contest hosted by the airport final yr, the massive fowl is now higher referred to as Phoebe.

We lastly received to satisfy Phoebe in particular person and should say we’re simply wowed.

The flamingo isn’t the one newish huge murals at TPA Airport. And much from the one interesting paintings in TPA’s impressive public art collection.

Aaron Stephan’s “Paths Rising,” within the Most important Terminal walkway to SkyConnect Station, consists of over 600 ladders set inside a lightweight effectively and positioned to indicate a portal to what lies past.
