SAN ANTONIO (June 21, 2019) – Summer Solstice happens twice each year- once in each hemisphere- to mark the beginning of the season and the longest day of the year. San Antonio International Airport (SAT) celebrated the first day of summer with a special rhythmic dance performance in the Paseo Walkway of the long-term parking garage.

 

Catherine Cisneros, URBAN-15’s Artistic Director moves in tandem with the sun reaching its highest position in the sky. She used the colorful “Passing Light”, a solar sculpture created by Christopher Janney as her background during the seven minute performance. The sculpture incorporates large colorful plexiglass squares and grids that form different shapes when the sun passes by them.

 

“Today’s performance is a wonderful example of how our airport is the backdrop for creativity and it showcases the unique diversity and talent of our artistic community“, said Matt Evans, San Antonio Airport System’s Arts & Culture Manager.

 

This is the 18th year the summer solstice ceremony has been performed at SAT.
