The Tri-Cities Airport has announced the selected artists for the 2019 public art opportunities in the terminal. While 17 qualified artists submitted their work, only three were chosen. Richard Kimura, Suzi Vitulli and Dixie Blankenship are all local artists who will provide pieces in a beautiful mix of styles and materials that highlight the bounty of the Tri-Cities region.
“We love providing the opportunity for local artists to showcase their work,” said Buck Taft, Director of Tri-Cities Airport. “The airport is the first thing visitors experience in our region, and the last thing they see when they leave. It’s wonderful to be able to share some of the creativity that makes the Tri-Cities community so unique.”
Each artist has a separate wall in the terminal to showcase their pieces. Installations begin mid-January and the artists’ displays will be up through the year.
