Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) Temporary Art Exhibition Program was conceived to help the Airport continue to enhance travelers’ experience by providing examples of the artistic richness and cultural diversity of the greater Cleveland area. In recognition of this year’s 75th Anniversary of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) John H. Glenn Research Center, Mayor Frank G. Jackson gave brief remarks at the Art Exhibit event held at CLE on Riverside Drive.
Named after former senator, John H. Glenn, an Ohioan who was the first-American to orbit Earth when he piloted “Friendship 7” around the globe three times in 1962, the Glenn Research Center designs, develops and tests innovative technology for aeronautics and spaceflight. Additionally, the Center designs game-changing technology for spaceflight that enables further exploration of the universe and creates cutting-edge aeronautical technology that revolutionizes air travel.
Mayor Jackson was joined by Dr. Janet Kavandi at the opening of the exhibit, Research Rising: Celebrating 75 Years of the NASA Glenn Research Center, which is currently on display at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. The exhibit captures the essence of NASA’s commitment to transforming aviation by dramatically reducing its environmental impact, maintaining safety in more crowded skies and paving the way to revolutionary aircraft shapes and propulsion.
