Pont des Arts

As you cross the recreation of the Pont des Arts bridge between the UK and France Pavilions, there is a small detail that relates directly to the actual bridge from Paris. Les Pont des Arts is a historic bridge on the Seine River. It was rebuilt in the 1980's after having stood for almost 200 years. Besides being a tourist destination, it is often used for picnics, by artists (due to its location and point-of-view) and for art displays.

Jessica from If We Can Dream It covered the painting in an earlier post.

As you cross the Channel from the UK to France, you will notice a tableau on your right. A portrait left by an artist frames the view of World Traveler shop at the International Gateway.

It is one of those great details!
