New Signage Designed for Aviation Park

October 22, 2019

The Town Center Community Improvement District (Town Center CID) and Town Center Community Alliance (the Alliance) are excited to present the new signage design for Aviation Park. Created by the Kennesaw State University (KSU) Master Craftsman program, the new sign will be located in front of the park on the corner of Barrett Lakes Boulevard and Cobb Place Boulevard, adjacent to the end of the Cobb International Airport runway.

The artistic team at KSU took inspiration from flight, aviation, play and childlike fun when designing the piece. The 19-foot-wide stainless-steel sign will display the name of the park and feature paper airplane-like structures with some as tall as 10 feet. Fabrication for the sign has begun, and installation is expected to be complete in December of this year.

“As children, one of the first ways we engage with the idea of flight is with paper airplanes. We wanted this piece to be fun and light, as well as serve as an iconic sign for the park,” says Jennifer Hogan, director of the Alliance.

Aviation Park, which opened in November 2017, features an open space for airplane viewing, a playground area, parking and restrooms. This sign is just one of several ways the Alliance is working to enhance Aviation Park. Alongside KSU’s Department of Museums, Archives, and Rare Books, the Alliance unveiled plans for phase II of the park, including a plane display, several art, history, and S.T.E.M.-focused exhibits, and other innovative installations. Each exhibit will be interactive and have a curriculum available. To learn more about how you can be a part of this project, visit http://www.towncentercid.com/projects/aviation-park/.
