Dúo Sinfónico
Edgardo Carmona
Location: Upper level, East Atrium, inside Door 2

The airport is temporary home to Dúo Sinfónico, a 10-foot-tall iron sculpture that captures a moment in which a flutist and his beautiful tunes attract a chirping bird to sing in duo with him. This piece is part of a larger exhibit, Allure Your Senses, currently on display in downtown Fort Myers and is the first time Carmona has exhibited his art in North America.
