EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - An art installation at the Eugene Airport that depicts local people in flying poses will return after it was moved for construction.

The Register-Guard reported Saturday (https://is.gd/OMpt6P ) that the art installation titled “Flight Patterns” will be returned to the Eugene Airport at a time and location still to be determined by a consultant.

The city moved the exhibit to Lane Community College for display and storage in October 2015.

The announcement comes after several city councilors lobbied for the return of the art installation to the airport.

Emails obtained by the Register-Guard show that airport officials had planned to permanently remove the exhibit when it was moved for the airport expansion, but officials changed their mind after public outcry.
