The Greenville Spartanburg Airport District (“District”) is requesting ‘Expressions of Interest’ from professional artists who would like to compete for a commission of an art installation here at GSP. The inclusion of new artwork will be an important part of the renovated terminal – if you are interested you can read the full ‘GSP Art Program” report here.
This artwork will help create a meaningful and authentic connection to residents and visitors alike, so the following three potential themes have been identified:
Where we live – integration of water and landscape
The Greenville-Spartanburg region, and in particular the airport, has made a commitment to landscape and water that is unique and distinctive. It is appropriate that this commitment is celebrated in one of the key themes that we have selected for the GSP art program.
Where we’ve come from – textile capital of the world
Historically the region achieved global recognition and stature as a center of textile manufacture, and it is therefore appropriate that this history forms another one of the key themes for the GSP art program.
Where we’re going to – technology and mobility
This theme is about the future of the region, and its pre-eminence as a North American center of technological innovation with specific reference to the automobile industry. This future state forms our third key theme for the GSP art program.
There are a total of twelve potential sites where this artwork will be displayed. Read the full report here, and share with your favorite local artist.
