Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has welcomed a range of new artworks by ten artists in nine installations across Terminals 1, 3, 7 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal.

The project was presented by the Los Angeles World Airport’s (LAWA) art programme with the aim of complementing the recently opened terminal spaces.

According to LAX, the art displays are set to showcase “the vibrancy of LA through sculpture, painting, photography, murals and multimedia”.

Bea Hsu, interim CEO at LAWA pointed to the artistic reputation of Los Angeles and how this is represented through the airports display.

Hsu said: “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”.

“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.”
