In 1987 the Tucson Airport Authority Board of Directors made a commitment to acquire art for the airport. Now more than 100 original works of art by artists living in Tucson’s air service trade area, which includes Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz, and Cochise counties and northern Sonora, Mexico, are represented in the collection.
Integrating art into the terminal structure is a component of the program. As part of the terminal expansion, art walls at the security checkpoints, on the baggage belts, and at the restrooms entrances feature original work from Arizona artists. Other sculptural art has also been integrated throughout the terminal complex.
This Art In The Airport guide was created for airport visitors who have a few extra minutes to tour the art collection and changing exhibitions.
In 1991 the airport initiated a temporary art exhibition program to enhance the traveling public’s experience by creating a memorable environment that promotes southern Arizona’s unique artistic and cultural heritage. Today the program boasts five galleries where displays are rotated throughout the year.
Artists and nonprofit organizations in southern Arizona and northern Mexico wishing to display art at TUS can apply with our online system. Just click the Artist Interest Form button below. Or see 2023 temp exhibit criteria and form for instructions to mail/email applications. The deadline for 2023 applications is October 1, 2022.
In 2007 the airport launched a performing arts program for individuals and groups to provide a cultural experience for our traveling public, meeters/greeters and employees at the airport.
Local performers are encouraged to participate.
