New York City is synonymous with art and creativity and we look forward to selecting works of art that will bring the unique sense-of-place to the terminal, and create visually interesting spaces that improves the overall passenger experience and match the stunning architecture of the new terminal.
LGP is currently seeking expressions of interest for the creation of several large-scale public art installations, sculptures and panels to be displayed throughout the new terminal. Selected artwork for the terminal will be reflective of New York City, making travelers feel the presence and energy of New York from the moment they arrive. Pieces will be selected that represent the many diverse communities that compose the fabric of the city.
Following the submission period, selected artists will be invited to the next stage of the selection process to submit for any or all of the art locations throughout the terminal. Final proposals will be reviewed at the end of October 2017. The selected artists will be required to submit a creative proposal for works that are permanent, original and designed specifically for the terminal by Oct 31, 2017. Development and fabrication will take place during 2018/2019.
Artwork will be featured between levels two and four of the terminal, in five permanent locations. These areas include the center of the headhouse, suspended features cascading over the east and west escalators, the check-in wall and the central retail and concession area on level four of the terminal.
