Fresh art at PHX Sky Harbor Int’l Airport

When we travel we often seek out water as refreshment, in the form of $6.99 bottles of water we buy at airports. Water can also be a destination, in the form of visits we make to ocean beaches and mountain streams.

And, of course, water can provide artistic inspiration – as we see in the newest exhibition at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.


Rebecca McNerney’s fiber wall-hanging depicts dozens of illuminated backyard pools visible when flying ovfer Phoenix at night.


The Phoenix Airport Museum presents the art exhibition Water in the Desert, featuring water-themed work by 31 artists from Arizona, a state known for having a very dry climate.


Jerry Jacobson used water as an art medium by drawing with rust on paper.

Charlotte Bender, Arizona‚Äôs Ancient Seas, oil on canvas, depicts coyotes and saguaros coexisting with an ancient Arizona sea.

The exhibition is on view in eight pre-security display cases at PHX Terminal 4, level 3, and wil be there through July, 2019.

    Thanks for mentioning my “AZ’s Ancient Seas”. This whole region was once an inland sea. This was a great theme for a show and I am glad to see a blog about Airport Art. So much good stuff around- so little time.
