The San Diego International Airport is more than a travel necessity; it’s also a great stop for public art in San Diego. The Airport places great importance on making amazing customer experiences and part of this is to create a beautiful location for people traveling into and out of San Diego. The Airport believes it’s the first impression visitors get of our city and the last impression before they leave. Because of this, they want to weave art into the architecture and experience and do it in a way that gives homage to the San Diego culture and art scene.
Art is everywhere in the San Diego Airport. The Airport has permanent installations throughout the terminals both inside and out. It also has rotating exhibits involving organizations and artists around San Diego County. For example, when The New Children’s Museum had their TRASH exhibit, there was a temporary exhibit at the Airport as well.
The San Diego Airport also has a performing arts program called a breve. It includes planned concerts and dances. It also includes impromptu performances to surprise travelers and make the Airport more fun (and less stress!).
