A mammoth sculpture created by The Art Guys almost 20 years ago is out of mothballs, and making its SA debut inside Terminal B’s second floor (departure level) ticketing lobby at San Antonio International Airport. Suitcase Wheel is a 16-foot diameter wheel made of vintage Samsonite suitcases stacked face-to-face to form a circle that is held together by a metal ring. First exhibited in 1995 at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, the sculpture’s last public viewing was in 1999 at the Tacoma Art Museum.  Sponsored by Public Art San Antonio (PASA), the exhibition is scheduled to be at the airport for two years.
