The largest art installation as part of the Salt Lake City International Airport is entitled “The Canyon,” and is being integrated on both the east and west walls 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 consists of almost 800 individual “fins”.
