The process for selecting artists and designing artworks for the Sacramento International Airport began when the airport art budget was established and an art plan for the project was approved by the County Board of Supervisors. The law recommends that 2% of County construction projects be spent on art, and that the work be selected and approved in a public process.
The artwork for the airport was selected, reviewed, and influenced by more than 30 curators, art historians and critics, in addition to County and airport staff, the airport’s principal architect, Corgan and Associates, and members of the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission. The entire process resulted in the approval and installation of 12 artworks for the new terminal.
