Paper fashions take to the runway
By DeAllous Smith

After seeing “Paper Runway,” the newest art exhibit at Hartsfield-Jackson, you may never look at trees the same way again.

“Paper Runway” is a unique exhibit of wearable clothing and accessory items - all made from paper. The highlights include ball gowns, business suits, stilettos, hats and vests.

The exhibit is being presented by Hartsfield-Jackson in partnership with the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum, home to the world’s most extensive collection of paper and papermaking artifacts.

“We are delighted to showcase this exhibit to the 250,000 passengers who travel every day through the Airport,” said David Vogt, manager of the Airport Art Program. “Our rotating-exhibitions program offers us the opportunity to highlight Georgia’s museums while bringing a tremendously diverse range of art and artifacts to the Airport.”

The artists created their designs using a variety of papers, including banana leaf fibers, recycled cotton rags and found objects, such as coffee filters.

On their way to Las Vegas for vacation, the Conners stopped to take a look at “Paper Runway.”

“These dresses are really cool,” Stacy Conner said. “I wonder if the designers can make the dresses in my size ... Oh, and they have shoes!”

“Paper Runway” is inside the gallery display cases in the walkway connecting the main security area and Concourse T. Travelers can enjoy the free exhibit through January 12.
