Brooklyn, NY - January 31, 2008 -
The grandest ocean liner in the world, Queen Mary 2, hosted over 200
guests at her home port in Brooklyn for a presentation and luncheon to
celebrate the European Travel Commission’s Giants of Culture and Travel
- a series of cardboard and mixed media sculptures designed by French
artist Dan Mestanza to represent the 20 ETC participating countries and
showcase the ETC’s 2008 culture and tourism campaign.
year’s presentation featured the 2008 European Cultural Capitals,
Liverpool, UK and Stavanger, Norway, along with a “giant” sculpture
created specifically for Cunard’s Queen Mary 2. Those giants were
joined by “sculptures” representing 18 other European countries. The
Giants of Culture and Travel are now on display at New York’s JFK
International Airport (Terminal 4) through this spring following their
premier onboard Queen Mary 2.
