JOIN US TO SUPPORT ART AT OUR AIRPORT
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.

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. Galaxy Band featuring Kim Fuller entertains throughout the evening, with airfield views as the perfect backdrop for this memorable night.

THE COPPER COLLECTION
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.
