The newest round of local artwork has been installed at the Tri-Cities Airport. The airport’s selections for 2021 were curated by the Airport Art Committee, and all celebrate the history of the Tri-Cities region.
The Pacific Northwest Aviation Museum, the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects, and the Franklin County Historical Society and Museum were selected to educate travelers on the people, buildings, and historical events that shaped the current Tri-Cities community.
“From artwork to archival imagery, this year’s art displays at the airport are sure to capture your attention,” said Buck Taft, Director of Tri-Cities Airport. “These insights into our region’s history help our passengers learn more about our community, and the three organizations do an excellent job of telling new angles of the Tri-Cities story.”
Each organization has a separate wall in the terminal to showcase their pieces, and the displays will be up through the year.
Pacific Northwest Aviation Museum: The museum has displayed several panels and photographs of aviation history in the Pasco region.
Franklin County Historical Society and Museum: The Franklin County Historical Society and Museum display celebrates the Connell, Mesa, Eltopia, Kahlotus, Basin City, and Pioneer Snake River landings. Maps, stories, and archival imagery tell the story of the establishment of these pioneer communities.
American Institute of Architects: The Central Washington chapter of the American Institute of Architects’ “A Celebration of Architecture in Central Washington and Oregon” features the memorable architecture in the Tri-Cities region. All of the buildings and homes showcased were created by local architects.
