Perch Here Between Flights

We all seek refuge and rest when we travel. St. Louis artist Solomon Thurman expands on that theme extending beyond airport travelers to other high-flyers: birds. Perch Here Between Flights is a series of 14 acrylic paintings of bird houses and birds in flight now on exhibition at St. Louis Lambert International Airport in Terminal 2, near gate E10.

Solomon Thurman is one of two famed painters who created the Airport’s Black Americans in Flight mural (1990, Terminal 1) and he is the 2018 Missouri Arts Council Artist of the Year. Perch Here Between Flights is curated by Patricia “Pat” Smith Thurman, Solomon’s wife. Together they founded 10th Street Gallery, an art gallery in downtown St. Louis, and were recently named co-chairs for the 2019 St. Louis Art Awards.

The paintings were inspired by a trip to Mobile, Alabama where Solomon visited an estate with more than 300 birdhouses on the property. The exhibition will be on display through April 2019.
