Today’s airports are constantly evolving and,nowadays, a trip through the airport offers an experience rather than just an outlet from which to catch a flight. Airports have caught on to the new trend of becoming a ‘lifestyles’ brand, adding not only world class shopping, eating and drinking to their offering, but also unique elements like gyms, spas, and in some places, fantastic works of art. So for art lovers who also enjoy travelling the world, here are some of the best airports in which to indulge your cultural appetite.
Edinburgh Airport Gallery
Not only can you gaze at exceptional art while visiting the gallery, you can also purchase it. Fine art, prints, and crafts in the form of amazing clocks and sculptures are all up for the taking, so those looking for something a little beyond the usual souvenir can find it here. Alternatively, it’s also a great place to while away the time while at the airport, but, if you do decide to buy, simply contact the curator, Jan Riley, who also happens to be one of the artists.
Bristol International Airport
In a city known for its art scene, you know the art at the airport has to be good. This airport features a long mural with bright colours. The subject matter is what makes the mural really special as it showcases some of the Bristol’smost famous landmarks, making for a special welcome home or nice introduction to the city for visitors. If you can’t make it to the airport in person, you can also view the murals online.
Philadelphia International Airport
With continually changing exhibits, this airport offers something new each time you visit. Past exhibits have featured unique collections such as The History of Black Dolls and The Nature of Collage. Most recent exhibits include Beer Bottle Clocks and posters for Movies Made in Philadelphia.
Miami International Airport
If you are looking for great contemporary artwork, book a flight through this airport. There is a big focus on culture featured within the art exhibits, which make the experience enjoyable and educational. The airport has also distributed various pieces beyond the exhibit area so travellers can view additional displays of artwork while passing through the terminals.
Denver International Airport
There is more art to see than just the notorious and menacing Blue Mustang outside of this airport. This airport has one of the best and most renowned public art collections and also practices a rotation, frequently changing exhibitions and inviting new artists to showcase their work. Denver Airport’s style keeps things fresh while introducing travellers to some of the modern world’s most-up-and-coming artists.
