ILM unveils new works of art as part of its expansion


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Wilmington International Airport unveiled part of its expansion on Friday. It is a work of art to welcome visitors designed by local artist Paul Hill.

The terrazo floor at the main entrance to the airport depicts Venus fly traps, native only to Cape Fear.

This is one of the three pieces that arrive at the airport. The other two are expected to arrive next year. Hill said he was happy his art was making a lasting impact.

“Well, it’s nice to know that even if I go I might be leaving something behind and that means something and that’s important,” Hill said.

The ILM unveiled the article on Friday afternoon, in the presence of the members of the Board of Directors of the Airport Authority, commissioners and leaders of the arts council.
