Lambert-St. Louis International Airport- Concourse B
The Art of Travel returns for a third year at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport on October 10. Join us for a benefit with some wicked good hors d’oeuvres and signature Art of Travel cocktails while we take it to the max and transport you back to the awesome ‘80s. The event will feature a silent auction of work from local artists. Guests are encouraged to dress in fun ‘80s style and get free snapshots with friends. We hope you get into the mix to celebrate the achievements of the Lambert Art and Culture Program!
The Art of Travel is the signature social event for Lambert-St. Louis International Airport benefitting the Lambert Art and Culture Program. The annual event supports the Airport’s mission to feature more art and cultural works at the Airport through permanent installations and temporary exhibits. The inaugural Art of Travel event in 2011 helped provide immediate financial support for a multi-colored terrazzo floor medallion inlay, New Village, by St. Louis artist Alicia LaChance. It’s located just past the C Concourse checkpoint. It also funded new exhibitions at Lambert’s Meeting Place Gallery in the Terminal 1 Bag Claim. The second annual Art of Travel in 2012 raised more than $54,000. A majority of those funds will support a new art installation in the new Terminal 1 Atrium adjacent to the Airport’s new entertainment stage. An artist selection process is underway and will wrap up this fall with installation set for spring 2014. See 2012 Art of Travel photos here.
