SAVE THE DATE

Lambert-St. Louis International Airport invites you to be a part of our signature event of the year. The Art of Travel gala raises funds to enhance the visual appearance and cultural connectivity of the airport through art and exhibitions.  Join us on Thursday evening, October 6, 2016 to help support art at our airport.

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.

Savor Art of Travel’s exquisite chef table dining experience, where expert culinarians from around the nation prepare gourmet delicacies. Sip a signature cocktail, or choose your own pour from one of four bars, including the Budweiser Lounge. Bid on top travel and art experiences in our silent auction,  or try your luck in our raffle. A live band entertains throughout the evening, with airfield views as the perfect backdrop for this memorable night.

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.
