Four local artists have had their work selected from among more than 115 submissions for display at Columbia Metropolitan Airport.
The 2020-2021 Art in the Airport Program will feature each work for a four-month period beginning in October, according to a news release.
“CAE’s Art in the Airport Program provides a wonderful opportunity to showcase works of art created by artists right here in the Midlands,” Kim Jamieson, CAE director of marketing and air service development said. “The art program is also intended to enhance our travelers’ experience while creating a sense of place within the airport. Once a traveler lands, these works of art will be the first artistic and cultural touchpoints to the region.”
The art will be exhibited in the terminal connector, the security checkpoint walkway, and at the departure/arrival gates.
The artists chosen, and the dates their work will be displayed, are:
- Christopher Garvey (October 2020 – January 2021)
- Ija Charles (February 2021 – May 2021)
- Sonya Diimmler (June 2021 – September 2021)
- Harold Branham (October 2021 – January 2022)
