Indy Gives Generous Nod to Airport Art


INDIANAPOLIS--Visitors to the new Indianapolis Airport, scheduled for completion in late 2008, will experience a variety of new art, as commissioned by the Indianapolis Airport Authority.

Artworks to be placed range from shimmering glass walls, to eyecatching murals in glass and mosaic, to colorful designs created in terrazzo flooring. The 15 artists commissioned to produce the artworks include six Indiana artists, eight from throughout the U.S., and one who lives in the United Kingdom.

The artists, selected through a professional review process, bring a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, artistic media and international experience with public art to the new Indianapolis Airport, says John J. Kish, project director. "We believe that once it opens, our new facility will gain a reputation for the artistic quality that is emerging throughout the City of Indianapolis."

Several of the artworks include opportunities for local community involvement. Janet Zweig, a New York-based artist, plans to videotape local citizens for inclusion in her artwork. Martin Donlin, an artist from the U.K., will work with local writers and poets to obtain texts for his architectural glass art.

Other well-known artists commissioned include Rob Fisher of Bellefonte, PA; Ann Gardner of Seattle; and the Chicago-based artist team of Stuart Keeler and Michael Machnic.

The six Indiana artists chosen are:

* Lynn Basa, a native of Bloomington who currently lives in Chicago, and who has designed a floor-based artwork for Civic Plaza, the main public area of the terminal;

* Arlon Bayliss of Anderson, who will create artwork incorporating a glass wall in a security screening checkpoint;

* Dale Enochs, a sculptor from Bloomington, who will carve a pair of wall relief sculptures out of limestone for the ticket hall;

* James Wille Faust of Indianapolis, who will create a combination painting and sculpture for the main terminal escalator;

* Tom Torluemke of Hammond, who has designed two floor-based "murals" for the plazas that join the concourses to the main terminal; and

* Nhat Tran, an Indianapolis-based painter, who will use the technique known as urushi (Asian lacquer painting) to create an abstract mural for one of the security screening checkpoints. …
