Three new exhibitions at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) are all about the city’s natural and urban geographies.
“Oceano Romantico” was curated by Giorgio Carlevaro and features work by 20 local artists charged with relating how the ocean’s energy “drives their desire to capture its eternal, yet ephemeral beauty.” Look for these pieces in Terminal 1 in the main corridor and along the hallway leading to Gate #2.
“A Place in the Sun: Desert Landscapes,” in Terminal 2, features oil paintings of natural desert elements, such as cactus, rocks, and wildflowers by local artists Judith Amdur and James Griffith.
And in “Alternative Places,” in the Tom Bradley International Terminal Arrivals Lobby, curator Jay Lizo asked 37 local artists to create artwork 12 x 12 inches about a place in Los Angeles. This exhibit is on display through October 19, 2008.
