Lambert-St. Louis International Airport installed a series of art glass screens in Concourses A & C in 2011 and 2012. These were the first commissioned works through the Airport’s new Public Art and Culture Program.
Nine local artists were chosen for the project through a competitive call to artists. Only artists living within 150 miles of St. Louis were considered.
Each artist created a concept for three side-by-side glass panels, each about 5.5 ft high by 3ft wide, for an overall glass canvas of nearly 50 square feet. The artists were chosen by the Airport’s new Art Advisory committee, with a focus on their past artistic works and the best artistic styles that would translate into glass.
“The nine selected regional artists represent a wide variety of contemporary artistic styles. The result will be an exciting and diverse collection of nine works created specifically for Lambert,” said Jill McGuire, Executive Director of the Regional Art Commission and member of the Airport’s Art Advisory Committee. “It is wonderful to see Lambert’s commitment to enriching its public spaces with art.”
