San Diego International Airport will host a community forum and teen workshop to generate ideas from San Diego’s youth, airport stakeholders, and the general public on two future public art mural designs. The murals will be displayed on the east-facing Commuter Terminal wall. Attendees will have the opportunity to provide feedback directly to the artist in order to inspire creation of future design concepts.
The community discussion forum is open to the public. Individuals with knowledge or experience in the aviation and aeronautical industries are highly encouraged to attend.
The teen workshop is organized in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego’s Teen Advisory Group (TAG), which is comprised of 15 teens from across San Diego County. TAG participants will create a small collaborative mural during the workshop, which will later be installed on the Youth Art Wall in Terminal 2 East.
In September 2013, Jari ‘Werc’ Alvarez was awarded a contract to develop three unique artwork designs for the Commuter Terminal east-facing exterior wall. Each design will be on display for 3–5 years. Werc’s first design, SAN, was installed in March 2014. As this wall is highly-visible to San Diego’s residents and visitors, the airport is seeking to engage the community in the development of Werc’s subsequent mural designs.
