Passengers flying out of Pittsburgh International Airport have more than people or aircraft watching to entertain them. The Moon transportation hub is currently hosting two new art and cultural exhibits, officials say.

The facility has partnered with Fallingwater, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy and the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh to install the exhibits, showcasing regional assets.

Visitors may view a scale model and video of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece Fallingwater while collecting their luggage across from the VisitPittsburgh kiosk.

Made by Emmy Award-winning director Kenneth Love, the video features Rembrandt 3-D technology with “true to life” image realism without requiring special eyewear. Viewers will hear a short history of the Fayette County property’s commission in the late 1930s, along with a biography of owners the Kaufman family of Pittsburgh and Wright.

The 1:87 scale model is one of only two such models of the house, which is a National Historic Landmark. The other is on display at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.

Lynda Waggoner, Fallingwater director and Conservancy vice president, hopes the display will encourage visits to the site, 90 minutes outside of Pittsburgh.

“The 3-D video and model will give an engaging introduction to Fallingwater, from its history to what the house and surrounding grounds look like,” she says in a release.
