TAMPA — As part of its continuing $2 billion expansion, Tampa International Airport is about to go shopping for more public art, and its budget is $3.1 million.
Airport officials are in the market for nine new pieces of public art, with commissions ranging from a little under $100,000 to $520,000.
The call is open to visual artists working in any medium. So what are their tastes? What are they looking for?
“Bold innovative works that reflect Tampa Bay’s rich heritage and natural resources and celebrate our history as the birthplace of commercial aviation,” airport executive vice president of marketing and communications Chris Minner said in an announcement Wednesday.
