Kahn was selected by a review panel as the artist to work on the facade of the ATL West parking deck, which will be built next to the Georgia International Convention Center.
The ATL West deck will replace parking being displaced during construction of other airport projects, including a new hotel, taxiway and a concourse extension. It will also provide additional parking when the domestic terminal parking decks are demolished and rebuilt. Construction of the ATL West parking deck will start this year and is expected to be completed in 2019.
Kahn's artwork will be far from the most expensive piece at Hartsfield-Jackson. That title belongs to the $4.1 million "Flight Paths" art installation completed last year that simulates a walk through a forest between Concourses A and B.
Separately, the airport plans for a $200,000 piece of artwork by artist Christopher Fennell to be installed at the intersection of Godby Road and Clipper Drive in College Park, near the airport.
The airport owns about 152 acres of land near the intersection, with most of it undeveloped land that's "ripe for development," according to city documents.
The artwork by Fennell is intended to be at the entryway to the property, part of an effort "to generate interest by companies interested in real estate near the airport," said Hartsfield-Jackson general manager Roosevelt Council during a city council committee briefing Monday.
