"In Plane View" Exhibit by Carolyn Russo at the Air Zoo

On May 8, the Air Zoo will be opening "In Plane View" to the public, which is an exhibition of 56 large- format photographs by Carolyn Russo.

The exhibit showcases the aesthetic quality of some of the National Air and Space Museum's iconic aircraft. With up-close facets, sculptural forms, and life-like elements, "In Plane View" directs viewers' attention to the often-overlooked simple elegance of aircraft design. Russo exposes the bold colors, textures, shapes, and patterns that characterize diverse flying machines and with her lens, transforms technology into art.
