Call to Artist: PSHIA Terminal 3 Modernization

The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture’s Public Art Program is requesting qualifications from artists to create signature works as part of the modernization of the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport Terminal 3. The modernization of Terminal 3, a 35-year-old facility, will incorporate new finishes, façades, infrastructure and specialty systems, and provide the City of Phoenix with a bold space that acts as a front door for travelers to the city and state. The project offers several opportunities to integrate major artworks into the building architecture and create stand-alone landmarks that can be experienced from multiple perspectives inside the terminal. The selected artists/artist teams will be required to work closely with the design team to incorporate the artwork into the terminal design and construction documents.

The estimated budget is up to $4,000,000.
