Artist Ed Carpenter

Artist Ed Carpenter created Aloft, the elegant and epic artwork (at 360 feet in length, we can call this artwork epic!) that captivates travelers in Wichita’s Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport lobby. For over 40 years, Carpenter has realized public art in vast spaces on a grand scale. Glass is a core ingredient for Carpenter, elevating his complicated engineering feats to a sense of lyric weightlessness. Science, engineering, and art meet in the art of this veteran pioneer. Meet Carpenter again and discover the adventurous new work he’s completed since the 2015 Wichita airport opening.
