Hello friends,

Sharing a few updates below as October is now quickly underway.  These include deserved recognition for our resident artist Margaret Noble, and continued partnerships with valued community arts organizations.  Behind the scenes, the Arts team is actively preparing for the planned redevelopment of Terminal 1 and associated facilities.  This project, known as the Airport Development Plan (ADP), will allow for the creation of numerous public art projects, a Lead Artist working in direct collaboration with the Design-Build team, and several other arts-based capital improvements.  The Airport Authority Board approved the Design-Build contract at last month's Board meeting, and with that the validation period for the project has begun.  It will last approximately eight months.  Please keep your eyes open for more announcements and arts solicitations coming soon.

2020 Fall Performing Arts Residency 
Margaret Noble's [Sky][Muse]

The Arts Program's Fall 2020 Performing Arts Residency artist, Margaret Noble, was featured in the San Diego Union Tribune.
The airport is a fascinating place. It holds dreams of exploration, opportunities in other regions, and connections between separated loved ones. It is a place of excitement, joy and sometimes fear. It is a place where you have to be perfectly patient and flexible as you enter the terminal and await the journey. There are people from everywhere waiting in an ambiguous time and place. It is a space in between spaces and to me the perfect place to engage audiences.
- Margaret Noble

New interactive visual music experiences are now live and will be released every month through December. Not limited to the experience of air travel, these works are available for anyone in waiting or on a journey.
