Public art commissioned for Tampa International

The Hillsborough County Aviation Authority board has approved contracts for seven new pieces of public art at Tampa International Airport in Florida, USA, as part of its ongoing expansion program.

The proposed new art is wide-ranging, both in style and medium, and includes everything from hanging digital installations to abstract images, as well as an aluminum sculpture displaying hand-typed stories and photos of Tampa.

Two of the pieces will be located inside the new consolidated rental car center, three will be found inside the automated people mover stations, and two will be housed inside Airside F. The total budget for the seven pieces of art is approximately US$1.8m.

Chris Minner, vice president of marketing, Tampa International Airport, said, “Our call to artists was heard locally and around the world. The caliber of the artists and their proposals were truly remarkable. This public art will make unique and lasting memories for the millions of travelers who see it every year. It’s going to be something really special.

“The success of Tampa International’s public art program is a direct result of the hard work put in by the individuals on this committee and the airport’s outstanding staff. We are so grateful for the hundreds of hours they logged and the time they took out of their busy schedules to be a part of this important process.”
