Now in its sixth year, Art of Travel toasts to The Dawn of St. Louis Aviation in ‘20s style.  Just as the 1920s began to famously “roar,” an airport was born to soar- connecting St. Louis to the world.

Bid on top travel and art experiences in our silent auction,  or try your luck in our raffle. Galaxy Band featuring Kim Fuller entertains throughout the evening, with airfield views as the perfect backdrop for this memorable night.

  • $75 in advance / $100 at the door
  • Dining, drinks, parking and entertainment included

Art of Travel puts the spotlight on culinary arts.  The menu features favorite 1920s foods, transformed into sweet and savory delectable gourmet reincarnations by top chefs with HMS Host.  It may be hard to believe, but these dishes taste even better than they look!  The skillfully prepared menu includes dishes featuring slow roasted duck, locally-sourced lamb, oxtail, crab, shrimp, salmon, caviar, pork, beef and roasted chicken.  Guests can also indulge in a dreamy waffle and dessert bar. 


 

"Blue Lady,"  a shimmering 1920s beauty with a passion for future flight, is a stunning illustration by Carlos Zamora, who has unveiled his poster design for the 2016 Art of Travel event.

A limited number of Zamora’s “Blue Lady” prints, produced on 100% cotton archival museum paper, will be available to guests that evening donating to the Lambert Art & Culture Program. Event sponsors will also receive a signed, limited edition print.

Zamora donated his talents as long-time creative director and illustrator to design “Blue Lady.” He is a Co-Chair of the 2016 Art of Travel host committee. The Cuban-born and St. Louis advocate has had illustrations published by the New York Observer, The Boston Globe, Ad Age, American Lawyer, The Wall Street Journal and St. Louis Magazine. He is a former President of AIGA St. Louis - the professional association of Design, and serves as a brand chair on several boards in the city.

ART ELEVATES


With community support, the acquisition

of new art works elevates the visual identity

of the Airport and promotes community pride.

The mission of the Lambert Art and Culture Program is to create a visually outstanding impression of Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, generate community pride, and ensure that art at Lambert continues to complement and build upon its rich visual legacy. 

Through both visual and performing arts, the program aims to highlight the unique art and culture in the St. Louis region, as well as works from national and international scenes.

The program was created as a component of the Airport Experience Campaign (2008-2014);  the largest interior renovation of Terminal 1 in its history.  An Airport Art Advisory Committee (AAAC), consisting of seven highly qualified local arts professionals appointed by the St. Louis City Mayor, oversee the program.

 

The AAAC reviews all works considered for commission, loan, gift or temporary exhibition. The first project for the program was the selection of nine local artists to create works for display on a set of art glass screens in Concourses A & C in 2012. The program also supports a series of curated art and culture exhibits by local and regional institutions in The Lambert Gallery, located in Terminal 1.

Thanks to this program, artists whose work has graced the public spaces in the airport include: Alicia LaChance, Ken Konchel, Daniel Raedeke, John Foster, Steven Ladd and William Ladd.  Many more artists have been featured in curated exhibitions by local organizations such as Craft Alliance, The Sheldon Art Galleries, The Missouri History Museum, The International Photography Hall of Fame,  Griot Museum, Foundry Art Centre and the World Chess Hall of Fame.

A Destination

Concourse B was transformed into a moonlit Paris streetscape for Lambert-St. Louis International Airport’s 5th annual Art of Travel.  Guests were treated to a grand, red carpet entrance into the one-of-a-kind venue.  The glimmer of dozens of candles, the warm glow of street lamps, and the delicate aroma from lavender bouquets set the perfect mood.   Guests could even sample Absinthe, authentically prepared from a French fountain, and pick blooms from a Parisian flower cart.

Ooh la la

The Copper Collection, jewelry crafted by local metalsmiths from Lambert’s historic original roof, was the highlight of the evening.

bon appetit

Expert chefs with HMS Host flew in from all over the country to fill seven chef tables with the finest French cuisine.
