Art in the Airport


Creating a Sense of Place

Creating a sense of place involves connecting an airport to the region it serves through art, culture, cuisine, individuals and institutions. We are pleased to partner with museums, artists, musicians and others in Pittsburgh’s vibrant arts community to showcase our region’s unique amenities and enhance travelers’ experience in the terminals.

Mission of the Art in the Airport Advisory Committee

To manage an art collection of style, diversity and beauty to be enjoyed by our traveling public and employees that also promotes public art and enhances the airport environment.

Art and Cultural Object Collection
Including art in the passenger experience at PIT has been an important goal dating to installation of Alexander Calder's Pittsburgh at Greater Pittsburgh International Airport. From internationally acclaimed artists to heralded sports legends, the PIT art and cultural object collection re­flects Allegheny County’s diverse cultural attractions.

Yesterday’s Airport of Tomorrow

The historical, architectural and cultural significance of Greater Pittsburgh Airport (1952-1992) has been recognized by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Historic Preservation, and is presented in an interactive display in the transit level lobby of the airside terminal at Pittsburgh International Airport.
