Tour of remodeled airport conducted for potential decorators
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

It may take more than a big vase and a few throw pillows but two area people were interested in possibly providing interior decorating for the newly remodeled Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport.

The airport commission’s Public Relations/Marketing Committee is requesting proposals from firms or individuals to provide interior decorating at the terminal. The committee is asking for suggestions for type and location of art and for type and location of paint accents.

Showing interest in the project and the tour were Danae Blanck Anderson of I.D. Your World and Nathan Krueger, a Delta and Airmotives employee who is also a photographer.

The goal, according to Interim Airport Manager Rick Adair, is to “make it not look so sterile.” He asked the decorators to consider ways to improve the acoustics of a terminal that has hard walls and quite a bit of glass. Bob Cohrs of the Short Elliott Hendrickson engineering firm said decorative items could include sculptures, tapestries or plants. He suggested that they consider potential maintenance problems as they plan interior decoration.

“It would be nice to have some local touches,” Adair said.

Anderson and Krueger were asked to submit their proposals no later than 3 p.m. Jan. 26.
