Brief Description

An Artist or Artist team will be selected to design, fabricate, transport and deliver, and consult during the installation of a permanent artwork for the Airline Support Public Art Opportunity. The proposed Artwork will be sited in front of security fencing that surrounds a secured Airside apron area used by airline tenants for staging of cargo and ground equipment. The artwork is expected to double as a screening element and may take the form of a screen, wall relief, or multiple successive sculptural elements. The artwork should resonate with the Airport’s commitment to environmental stewardship. It should contemplate the unique siting of the Airport, the ecological conditions and history of the site, as well as the native flora and fauna. The artwork should also consider wind or solar power to activate kinetic or lighting components. Applicants shall have successfully completed at least one large-scale permanent public art commission project with a budget of at least $50,000.
