Today, XNA Airport reveals the “Ice and a Slice” installation by Camille Walala is now complete, covering the exterior of side-by-side service buildings on Regional Avenue.
Taking its title from a classic line that British air hostesses would repeat to travelers on board when offering them a drink, “Would you like ice and a slice of lemon in your drink?” The installation, produced by OZ Art NWA and curated by Justkids in partnership with XNA Airport, makes an unforgettable first impression both from the sky and on the ground.
