$250,000 immigration art

"The artwork design should be light and airy, and communicate a sense of welcome and embrace."

Art-starved?: baggage claim at Lindbergh Field, aka San Diego International Airport

Public art, $1.2 million worth, is being commissioned by the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority to adorn the main airport’s forthcoming Federal Inspection Services facility, says a February 8 call for proposals. “This opportunity is for an Artist or Artist team to design, fabricate and install an art glass treatment within an approximately 270´ long by 13´ high partition wall along the south edge of the baggage claim hall of the FIS facility,” says the notice. “The artwork design may be composed of abstract elements or feature narrative content that unfolds across the width of the wall. The artwork will be visible from both the interior of the baggage claim hall and the exterior curbside area, particularly when illuminated at night. The imagery that comprises the design should reflect a cohesive theme or approach.” The cost is estimated to be $900,000.

In addition, artists are being sought to “fabricate and install a suspended artwork within the ‘meeter/greeter’ lobby of the Federal Inspection Services facility. The meeter/greeter area is where friends and loved ones await and unite with arriving international passengers. The artwork design should be light and airy, and communicate a sense of welcome and embrace reflective of the function of the site. The selected Artist may consider subtly activating the work with analog kinetic features or including integrated lighting elements.” The estimated price tag is $250,000.
