Call to Artists - Design, Production, and Installation of Art Works for the JNU Airport Terminal Reconstruction Project
The Juneau Airport Terminal reconstruction project offers several opportunities for art works to be successfully integrated into the architecture. There are very limited opportunities for art works that require wall space or floor space for display.
The reconstructed north end of the building will be a two-story structure that matches the exterior character of the 2010-12 additions. Exterior materials will primarily be enamel finish metal panels and large windows. A glass canopy along Shell Simmons Drive is expected to be extended along the front elevation, and it is hoped that the existing “wetland garden” will remain in its current location. Interior materials will follow the color and texture pallet of the existing east terminal, but may introduce special accents or design features. Alaska Airlines’ check-in kiosks will be relocated from their current positions.
The following opportunities for public art have been identified by the Art Panel. Artists are encouraged, but not limited, to propose art works for these areas:
1. Floor mosaics, especially in the existing Check-In Lobby and the new Regional Air Carrier Lobby.
2. Signage, graphic images, or wall treatment denoting Restrooms.
3. Stairway embellishment/sculpture.
4. Glass design, especially the new east facing exterior wall along Shell Simmons Drive.
5. Specialized building components, furnishings or fixtures, including, but not limited to handrails and guardrails, lobby furniture, interior light fixtures, etc.
6. Hanging sculpture in the two-story open space in the Regional Air Carrier Lobby.
7. Exterior sculptural sign that incorporates “Welcome to JNU Airport” message.
No restrictions on the type or nature of art are directed through this CFA, as long as the subject is appropriate in a public venue and materials are durable and low maintenance.
