Pandemic art at Long Beach Airport

Long Beach Warrior – by Mer Young

There’s a new pandemic-themed art exhibit at Long Beach Airport (LGB).

The exhibition features work by local women artists commissioned by the airport and the Arts Council for Long Beach (ARTSLB). The 20 pieces chosen reflect uplifting and hopeful messages related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Titled “We Got This: Art in the Time of the Pandemic,” the artwork was printed and installed on large construction barriers in public, highly trafficked areas of the airport. Images will stay up for at least six months, but you can see an online version of the exhibit is available here. We’ve pulled a few images as a preview.
