Photos: Art in Terminal 3 depicts airplanes, desert and showgirls
By Richard N. Velotta
Besides gleaming gates, shiny carrousels and brand-new amenities, a dozen art pieces will greet the guests.
Eight artists, including four from Southern Nevada, created pieces for T3. Each depicts an image of flight or the Southwestern desert landscape, and all are focused on a “dynamic” theme of movement.
Ten artists submitted proposals for five locations when architect PGAL & Associates sought the public art pieces in 2006. Airport officials said they selected works that depict a “sense of place.” That’s also why they included a replica of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign in the collection.
The county budgeted $5 million for the art.
