Magna Carta 800th anniversary commemorated with art exhibit at MSP airport
Thomson Reuters and the Airport Foundation MSP celebrate this week’s Magna Carta anniversary by creating Magna Carta to Minnesota: the Rule of Law, a unique art exhibit in Concourse C at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Minnesota’s deep roots in the law – and support for the rule of law – are celebrated in the more than 100 unique elements in the exhibit, which include historic West Publishing Company photos, a painting by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger and a bust of the first female Minnesota Supreme Court Justice, Justice Rosalie Wahl. This exhibit of paintings, sculptures, artifacts (and even bobble-heads) was built through contributions from Minnesota companies, law schools, and courts and individuals, attesting to the deep and diverse heritage of the law in the state.
“At Thomson Reuters we have never been more invested in the global rule of law,” saidRick King, chief operating officer for Technology at Thomson Reuters. “Rule of law inspires our philanthropic and corporate initiatives including support for the pro bono activities of our customers, financial support and donated libraries for Books for Africa, as well as the work of the Thomson Reuters Foundation. We are proud to support this exhibit celebrating Magna Carta in unique elements we
feel tell an important story about Minnesota and its people to visitors who come to our airport every day.”
Magna Carta to Minnesota: the Rule of Law will be featured through mid-November 2015 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Terminal 1-Lindbergh, Thomson Reuters Concourse C Art Gallery, near gate C12. Photos from the exhibit are also available online at www.airportfoundation.org.
