In conjunction with the new modernization plans for Sky Harbor International Airport’s Terminal 3, the city is accepting submissions from artists for two projects. The selected works are to be displayed in one of two new public spaces at the airport: Atrium and West Plaza.
The atrium project will be displayed in a 13 foot by 93 foot space on the wall. The selected piece is expected to be bold, dynamic, welcoming and two-dimensional per Rebecca Rothman, public art project manager for the city. “We tend to think about the bactrimsale.com glamour of travel – the great arrivals, the romantic departures – and recognize that this is the front door to the state,” Rothman said.
A southwestern-style outdoor garden in the West Plaza will be the future home of five sculptures to be nestled among native trees, shrubs, succulents. Although the artwork itself does not have to be desert-themed, it must be of character to reside in a desert outdoor environment.
In addition to the sculptures and native plant-life; the space will contain walkways, seating, and a traveler’s best friend, a dog park.
Submissions will be accepted until 5 p.m. Friday, July 29. Final approval stage and awarding of contracts to selected artists is expected in early fall.
