Explore Connecticut One Chair at a Time!
Bradley International Airport has partnered with Connecticut high schools to introduce usable art pieces in the terminal. Nine uniquely designed Adirondack rocking chairs are now located throughout the airport. Each one was designed and created by high school students. We are pleased to showcase their talent! And a special thank-you to the staff and administration of each school for supporting this program.
