‘The Rainbow’ – the 1991 artwork by Icelandic artist Rúrí at Keflavík Airport in Iceland.
The artwork by Icelandic artist Rúrí is situated in front of the air terminal a short distance to the north. It reaches 24 metres into the sky, made of stainless steel and stained glass. “The natural rainbow materializes out of the blue, lasts for a few moments and disappears just as suddenly as it appeared. Nobody can grasp it, nor even get close to it, yet it holds a very special value for most people”. Rainbow vas installed in 1991.
