Art at the airport

Friday, November 16, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Thanksgiving travel is inevitably hectic, but Austin-Bergstrom International Airport has some art displays that just might make the experience a bit more enjoyable. In the Barbara Jordan Terminal baggage claim, near carousel 1, the newly installed mural A Place to Call Home will enhance the view for all visitors to the airport. The mural was produced on fabric by artist Rakhee Jain Desai and is part of the city’s Art in Public Places TEMPO program. In addition, AIPP has added four new exhibits featuring local art in the concourse of the Barbara Jordan Terminal. These exhibits, which are beyond security checkpoints and accessible to ticketed passengers only, include a gallery dedicated to works by Latino artists, Texas wildlife paintings, digital creations and ceramic curiosities. Learn more about the art in the airport, and where to find it, here.
