Reagan National Unveils Art of Flight Exhibit

June 7, 2016

Student Artwork Depicting the Science of Flying on Display for Travelers

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport unveiled a new art exhibit featuring the work of 2nd grade students from Two Rivers Public Charter School.

The pieces on display in the baggage claim level of Terminals B and C artistically recreate the four forces of motion that are important for an airplane to take flight: weight, lift, thrust and drag.

The students hope their artwork will teach others about the physics of flight.

“Before the students even started their art work, they surveyed passengers about flight,” said Jessica Hall, lead 2nd grade teacher at Two Rivers Public Charter School. “This ignited their interest in creating art pieces that teach others about the physics of flight.”

The Two Rivers Public Charter School art project is one of the numerous works of art displayed at both Reagan National and Washington Dulles International Airport as part of the Airports Authority’s Arts Program. This program offers diverse regional, national and international rotating exhibits, live performances and public art displays that celebrate the beauty and creativity of the National Capital Region. For more information about the Arts Program at Reagan National Airport visit flyreagan.com/dca/arts-program.
