The City of Norfolk, Virginia wants to commission an artist to design and create artwork for the Norfolk International Airport.
Norfolk International Airport is the major airport serving southeast Virginia and northeast North Carolina. Surrounded by water and garden, it is enhanced by the splendor of the neighboring Norfolk Botanical Garden, which creates a beautiful buffer zone between the airport and the outside world.
The year-round beauty of the airport grounds has become a national role model for reconciling expanding air facilities with a delicate ecological sanctuary. It has one of the most beautiful air approaches of any city in the world.
The Public Art Planning Committee seeks an artist to design and create exterior artwork that will signal Norfolk as a friendly and welcoming city. The art should be site-specific, creatively stimulate thought and conversation, and be relevant to Norfolk. The perfect artwork will create a sense of arrival, originality and momentarily relieve the stresses of air travel.
Deadline for Submission: 2:00 PM EDT, May 4, 2017
