About This Spot
Artists: Jake Elliot and Eric "Mobe" Bass BNA Terminal Garage 2, Ground Level Dedicated: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 The mural On Air is a play on words, paying homage to the rich musical history of our city and to the role aviation plays in building our strong culture. On Air acts as a window from the airport into the city, pulling viewers into a depiction of a recording studio, overlooking the state-of-the-art BNA airport and iconic Nashville skyline, and inviting them to step up to the mic. This piece was designed to give Nashvillians and visitors a fun, interactive, and snapshot-worthy experience, turning what is normally a passive, mundane activity (waiting) into something that builds memories and captures the spirit of our city. On Air is a collaboration by two accomplished Nashville-based artists, Jake Elliott and Eric Mobe Bass. Their public art pieces can be found throughout Nashville from Charlotte Avenue to East Nashville. Jake is the founder of WHAT. Creative Group, an arts organization focused on engaging public art pieces and Jake has a strong studio practice. Eric is a recognized muralist, known for his deep understanding of color, light, and spray precision. His murals can be seen all around Nashville and Middle Tennessee.
