A Message From the Arts Program at San Diego International Airport
During these trying times I know that we are all receiving coronavirus updates and executive messages from any number of organizations, companies, platforms, etc. that we are members of or to which we subscribe. These messages mostly center on the prioritization of health and safety, for employees and patrons. Here at SAN we are taking similar appropriate measures. Our staff is working remotely, we are suspending public tours (see below), cancelling large events, retooling meetings for virtual participation, and are in the process of evaluating and adapting our programs to provide engagement in new ways.
As we undertake this new reality, we feel an obligation, and a sense of mission, to highlight the fact that artists and creative thinkers have always been the folks who find new solutions when presented with challenges. As natural problem-solvers, the solutions are innovative, the resulting work ground-breaking and transformative. It is with this mindset that we embrace the period ahead. Now more than ever, the value of the arts must be reaffirmed. Art brings us together and provides a sense of community. This human connection is vital as we all consider the well-being of our families, friends, and neighbors.
So, stay tuned, continue to support the arts in this time, and please see below for additional information.
