The Gallery at UTA Presents Flight Deck: Public Art at DFW and Love Field

Exhibition Dates: January 14 – February 16, 2013

Reception: Friday, January 25, 5:30 – 8:00 pm

Gallery talk during the reception beginning at 6:30 pm

Inspired by the ongoing Love Field Modernization Project as well as the $6 million commissioned art program at DFW International Airport, curator Benito Huerta organized this exhibition to showcase the lively public art activity at the two major airports in the Metroplex. Public art  - artwork created specifically for a publicly-accessible location – moves an artist’s work out of the confines of the gallery or museum and allows it to be seen by a wider audience in a less traditional setting. Enlivening the surroundings and enhancing the identities of the airports, public art at DFW and Love Field is a highly visible expression of the cultural diversity and vibrancy of the north Texas art scene.

The exhibit and all events are free and open to the public. 

Gallery hours are 10 am until 5 pm Monday through Friday and noon until 5 pm on Saturday. The Gallery is located in the Fine Art Building, room 169, at 502 S. Cooper Street, Arlington, TX.

The 2012-2013 exhibition schedule is made possible by the generous support of Arlington Camera, the Hanley Foundation, Hilton Arlington, and Nerwin & Martin Fine Art Services.
