"Gotta Go" at Jacksonville, Florida Airport (SkyWatch Friday)

I came home from Jacksonville, Fl. last night and found this fun and eye-catching piece of public art in the airport.

Jacksonville International Airport Permanent Art Collection
Gotta Go, Gordon Huether, 2008
"Artist Gordon Huether of Napa, California was commissioned by the Jacksonville International Airport Arts Commission to produce Gotta Go for Concourses A and C. Huether states: "Through the use of monumental imagery and utilizing the kinetic, color shifting properties of dichroic acrylic, we've created Gotta Go, an art piece full of constant discovery for travelers who use Jacksonville International Airport on a regular basis. This installation enhances Jacksonville's reputation as a city where culture and the arts are vibrant and alive, where people Gotta Go."

Great piece of art but I'll admit when I saw your title, I thought it was going to be a toilette shot! :)

This is striking. A different version of Blue Boy. I wonder if it was produced by Franz Mayer of Munich.

did you get anymore of this glass art? I'd love to see them

Very nice Tash! I have flown out of that airport every once in awhile because the flights out of Tallahassee are really expensive. I hope you enjoyed Jacksonville. Did you make it out to the beach at all?
