Salt Lake City International Airport is bringing the mountain views even closer.
Crews are installing new artwork at the airport’s entrance to welcome travelers who arrive by ground transportation before taking to the skies.
Gordon Huether, the artist behind the piece, has said the artwork is called “The Peaks” and will weigh 75 tons when completed. The piece began taking shape last month.
Huether, who is responsible for prominent artwork within the airport, led the team that resurrected the 2002 Winter Olympics’ Hoberman Arch that was unveiled at the airport’s exit last month.
The cluster of weathered pyramids that make up “The Peaks” stand as an apparent nod to Utah’s mountains. The structures were crafted in Germany, the airport said in a post on X, formerly Twitter.
Airport officials say the artwork cost $6 million and was paid for out of the airport redevelopment program budget.
Additional details will be released when the installation is officially dedicated in November.
