BLOOMINGTON (WJON News) -- Travelers using the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport will have a new piece of art to appreciate.

The Metropolitan Airports Commission has unveiled the design for a hanging sculpture. Artist Kipp Kobayashi will create a 45-foot-wide suspended public art sculpture that he has titled "The Dreams We Carry".

It will be in the Concourse G Rotunda, near gates G18-22 in Terminal 1. Created with see-through wire mesh luggage forms that hold unique objects inside - items curated from stories and surveys of Minnesotans and travelers who identified their most beloved possessions.

The permanent art installation is the final element of a recent concourse expansion project that added 50,000 square feet of public space to the two-story rotunda.
