The artwork was selected from a pool of nearly 100 applicants in partnership with the Arts Council of Long Beach with Marconi receiving $10,000 for his work. Airport Director Cynthia Guidry said that this incredible artwork serves as a reminder of their 100th anniversary and captures the essence of their Airport's rich history, its integral role in Long Beach's growth and evolution, and the vibrant spirit of their community. Arts Council Executive Director Griselda Suarez added that Marconi's piece creates a visual representation of the Airport's past century and bright future in Long Beach.
Smaller works by five runner-up artists will be displayed soon in a special post-security temporary exhibit planned for the North and South Concourses with each semifinalist being paid $1,500 for their art. The project was funded through Long Beach Airport's participation in the City's Percent for the Arts Program which designates funding for on-Airport art projects.
