Fabulous First Show for Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, MN
Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Minnesota held their First Annual National Arts Program® Exhibition with great success! Coordinator Diane Dombrock received an astounding 170 pieces by 104 artists representing 25 different companies within the airport. The artwork was professionally installed and displayed on the walls of Concourse C, a busy interchange between airport terminals. This space not only provided a great space to display the artwork, but allowed the thousands of people who pass through the airport daily to view the outstanding art created by airport employees and their family members. Diane stated that, “We are very pleased with the way the exhibition turned out.”
In addition to the wonderful support the NAP received from the Airport Foundation MSP, Jeff Hamiel, the Metropolitan Airports Commission Executive Director and Sue Gens, the Minnesota State Arts Board Executive Director, were in attendance at the awards reception on December 3rd to help recognize all the participants. More than 125 people braved the severe Minnesota weather to attend the awards ceremony and were treated to a high level reception that included live music from the Cierra Hill Duo.
The NAP is extremely excited about the continued success of our airport venues across the country and hopes that other airports will continue to join our program.
