Summer Solstice art installation

Within the garage structure, Christopher Janney designed the Paseo Walkway. The Paseo directs parking patrons to the Terminals along an avenue covered by a festive colored skylight. The remarkable thing about this public sculpture is that its real significance is the awareness of time and the sun’s movement across the sky as it casts a rainbow of colors across the garage walls and floor and the draws parking patrons to move through the streams of various colors. Along with this colorful moving skyline grid, high-tech light fixtures with lights that flicker and flash to emitting rhythmic sounds guide customers in the garage walkways to and from the terminals.

Why come to the San Antonio airport on this particular Saturday afternoon? Because the sklights in the roof of the parking garage shine colored light on a set of matching squares on the floor at exactly 2pm every June 21st.

This is cool art beyond words. And it's only in San Antonio.

Parking in the garage is free for the first hour. So your cost? ZERO.

See ya'll there.

Her movements are designed to bring a sense of moment and aware of our planet's humble travels in a celestial clock. The ancients - Egyptians, Aztecs, Celts, Mayans, Hindis, Incas and others built elaborate structures and rituals that made visible the moment of zenith.
