The Southwest Airlines concourse at Hobby Airport, Houston’s newest gateway to Latin America, introduces international travelers to the city’s vibrant arts and culture. Through a thoughtful long- term effort, the Houston Airport System (HAS) has assembled one of the largest collections of public art in Texas, amounting to nearly 300 commissioned and donated works. Forty-two pieces are currently on view at Hobby.  Carefully placed throughout the airport’s terminals, the collection showcases local luminaries and nationally recognized artists in a wide variety of media. These original works speak to the diversity of our city and its active art scene.

Our tour of the art at Hobby will include public and also some restricted areas and will be led by Tommy Gregory, HAS’s public art program director and curator.  Mr. Gregory directs public art commissions, acquisitions, maintenance, and conservation for George Bush Intercontinental Airport, William P. Hobby Airport, and Ellington Airport.  He is also an established artist, exhibiting his sculptures locally, nationally, and internationally and is co-founder of Sculpture Month Houston, a city-wide art campaign.  He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Houston.
