How Your Art Can Really Take Off

Nov 29, 2012

Lots of us would rather steer clear of construction, but Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is actually embracing it. 

The new runway and terminal expansion project will not only allow for more flights, it also creates more space for art.

So, the Broward County Public Art and Design Committee is looking for an artist, or perhaps artists, in residence.

And the art is supposed to be about the airport construction project itself.

Beth Ravitz is a visual artist who lives in Fort Lauderdale and veteran creator of projects through Arts In Public Places.

She’s also a Committee member and she stopped by the WLRN-Miami Herald studios to give interested artists some ideas of what the county is looking for in airport art.
