Art at the Airport with the Art Guys, Leamon Green, Leslie Elkins, Rachel Hecker, and Bert Samples

Leave your luggage at home and enjoy the dizzying array of contemporary art by award-winning artists at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Participants will travel by bus on this early evening tour of Terminals A, B, D, and E for a rare opportunity to view the site-specific, multi-media installations commissioned for a variety of public spaces. Carol Laufer, director of civic art and design for the Cultural Arts Council of Houston/Harris County, will provide an overview of the projects and civic art initiatives in general during our journey to the airport. After we arrive, several of the participating artists will join us for a behind-the-scenes tour to discuss their specific installations, providing insight into their concept, design process, and production.
Following the tour you may wish to join the artists and other participants for a casual, lively dinner at a local eatery (cost not included in the tour).

Light refreshments will be furnished during the bus journey.

Participants will be required to provide basic security information in advance and must have identification available at the airport.
