Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Atlanta, Georgia

Corncorde, 1996, 36"x120"x120", oil paint on carved wood

Corncorde was commissioned for the International Concourse of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in 1996, and installed just prior to the Olympic Games.  The 10 foot long "jet corn" with a 10 foot "shuckspan" was carved from tulip poplar and painted with oil paint. 

Corncorde can be seen at gate E-16. If you take the tram to Concourse E, go up the escalator and walk straight ahead past the long corridors on the right and left. Corncorde will be straight ahead on your left. More information on the artworks in Concourse E.  

"With the public installation of Concorde, Craig Nutt has achieved a rare fusion of wit, humor, social commentary, and graceful craftsmanship in a work which is appealing and morally grounded without ever appearing didactic or self-satisfied."
