Art and Culture
The mission of the Lambert Art and Culture Program is to create a visually outstanding impression of Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, generate community pride, and ensure that art at Lambert continues to complement and build upon its rich visual legacy.
The program was created as a component of a major renovation campaign, the Airport Experience Program (2008-2014). An Airport Art Advisory Committee (AAAC), consisting of seven highly qualified local arts professionals appointed by the St. Louis City Mayor, oversee the program. Current members: Shelley Hagan, Wells Fargo Curator Corporate Art; Laura Helling, Director of Development for Wings of Hope; Marilu Knode, Director of Laumeier Sculpture Park; Leslie Markle, Curator of Public Art, Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum; Kiku Obata, Founding Principal of Kiku Obata & Co.; Roseann Weiss, Director of Community and Public Arts for the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission; and Freida L. Wheaton, Salon 53 and Founder of Alliance of Black Art Galleries.
The AAAC reviews all works considered for commission, loan, gift or temporary exhibition. The first project for the program was the selection of nine local artists to create works for display on a set of art glass screens in Concourses A & C in 2012. The program also supports a series of curated art and culture exhibits by local and regional institutional in The Lambert Gallery in Terminal 1.
