As part of the the Art Master Plan for PTI Airport in Greensboro, NC, 5 Slobots were selected to be installed in 2 prominent locations. PTI has a dedicated art program that has been around since 2015. The PTI Art Master Plan creates a set of guidelines for the airport to include art, both permanent and temporary, in the facility for the enjoyment of both passengers and patrons. The goal of this program is to capture and convey the diversity, creativity, and history of the region through public art, as a means to welcome visitors to the airport and honor the community. It also encourages strategic partnerships with corporations, foundations, cultural and educational institutions, and individual artists in the Piedmont Triad.
Featured artwork is selected by the Airport Public Art Advisory Committee (APAC). This committee includes members from each of the major cities in the Piedmont Region from arts-oriented groups, as well as members of the Airport Authority staff.
The Slobots will remain installed at the airport through June 2020. For more information, please check out the post at PTI.
