The largest art installation as part of the Salt Lake City International Airport is entitled “The Canyon,” and will be integrated on both walls (east and west) of the new central airport terminal. “The Canyon” evokes the Salt Lake City landscape and spans 362 feet, the length of 1.2 football fields, using more than 2 acres of composite fabric, and the equivalent of eight miles of aluminum tubing. The entire work will consist of almost 800 individual “fins”.
