Recently I found myself with some time to spare, wandering through the walkway that connects the terminals within the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. It’s really a well-planned and easy-to-navigate airport. It has earned the “Global Efficiency Excellence Award” for thirteen years now. There are 7 terminals (including the international terminal – F), and a walkway (with optional train) that connects each of them in the order: T-A-B-C-D-E-F.
Between Gates T and A, you will find the Zimbabwe Sculpture Exhibit.
My favorite is the one between Gates A and B, the Rainforest Exhibit. The colors were extremely cool and the corridor was filled with frogs chirping, owls hooting, and just generally relaxing forest noise. About halfway through, there was a rain storm—which I did worry at first would get me wet. It was only a light show though.
The third exhibit is between Gates B and C. It’s the “Atlanta History” Exhibit. The walls chronicle the noteworthy happenings in Atlanta from the inhabitation of the Creek Indians, the arrival of European explorers, and then on up to the Civil Rights Movement. Television screens on the ceiling play on loop the inspiring words of Dr. Martin Luther King.
The rest of the corridors do not have exhibits yet. I walked them all to be sure. What they do have, however, is an overabundance of Public Service Announcements.
