LOS ANGELES – As passengers travel through Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) this holiday season, they will experience an inspiring range of new artworks by ten artists in nine installations across Terminals 1, 3, 7 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal. Presented by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA)’s Art Program, the new exhibitions complement recently opened and refreshed terminal spaces while showcasing the vibrancy of LA through sculpture, painting, photography, murals and multimedia. Together, these featured installations offer views of the city, whether from a bird’s eye perspective or through intimate portraits of those who call Los Angeles their home.

“The range of artworks on view at LAX is a testament to the boundless creativity that makes Los Angeles a key contemporary art destination in the world, with the new installations allowing passengers to explore different perspectives on our city,” said Bea Hsu, Interim Chief Executive Officer, LAWA. “Whether they are headed out of town or coming to LA this holiday season, guests are sure to find artwork that reminds them of what makes Los Angeles so vibrant and engaging.”

“LAX’s Art Program is focused on showcasing works by Southern Californian artists who express and amplify the creativity of our region. Our newest installations represent strong examples of how these artists experiment with color, forms, techniques, and unexpected materials to bring forth ideas about place, community and character,” said Sarah Cifarelli, Art Program Director, LAX. “Passengers traveling through LAX can begin or add to their exploration of LA’s art scene with world-class installations right here at the airport.”

Five of the nine installations are murals commissioned as part of the LAX Art Program’s new Meet Me at the Mural initiative, where artists design murals that welcome international and domestic guests to LAX. These accessible and inspiring artworks serve as visual markers within terminals, creating inviting and memorable guest experiences.
