Airport Art Collection Mission Statement

The goal of the Airport Art collection is to acquire contemporary art to enhance the airport environment and create a sense of warmth and community. The collection serves to welcome visitors and be a point of pride for residents. It does so by presenting the cultural diversity of Arizona communities and individuals though a variety of artistic styles, materials and disciplines.

Acquired through the Aviation Department’s Percent for Art funds or through donations, the Art Collection will consist of:

  • Portable works – varied studio work that can be reasonably transported and used in exhibition areas throughout the airport system. Potable work may be curated for specific sub-collections such as: contemporary ceramics; limited edition prints; paintings
  • Site specific installations
  • Architectural enhancements
  • Art pieces that meet standards for public art in an airport environment and can be aesthetically maintained and conserved.
