In celebration of 100 years of aviation on the site of St. Louis Lambert International Airport, STL Airport and the Lambert Art & Culture Program are seeking qualifications from artists and artist teams to create an original work of art for Terminal 1.

The 2020 Legacy Project will be a two-dimensional or low relief artwork located on a highly prominent wall, post-security in the light-filled atrium of the Yamasaki-designed Terminal near the C-Concourse area. The artwork site is prominent to the C-Concourse security checkpoint, visible from the pre-security area on the level above, and a potential milepost for arriving passengers exiting the C-Concourse. The 2020 Legacy Project has the potential to help define the experience of passengers arriving and departing, visitors awaiting friends and families, and TSA and Airport employees moving through their day.

The project celebrates 100 years of STL Airport linking the region with the world and continuing the legacy of innovation and forward thinking that led Albert Bond Lambert to begin the airport in 1920.

Qualifications will be reviewed by the Airport Art Advisory Committee (AAAC) and one artist will be recommended to create a site-specific proposal for the space. The submission requirements are described in the Request for Qualifications and the Application. The budget for the project is $200,000.

Qualifications are due by August 26, 2019
Artist Submissions through CaFÉ.
