As part of its expansion and renovation, LAX is dramatically increasing the reach of its public art program and making the airport a destination in and of itself. Influx: Art at LAX, the airport’s first-ever public art festival, opened in June and will run through the end of 2013. Presented in partnership with the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Influx features 11 original, temporary art installations located throughout LAX with new installations in Terminals 1, 2, 3, Tom Bradley International Terminal, 6, 7, and 8.
Some of the installations are on view for ticketed passengers only, so if you’re traveling through LAX, don’t miss the opportunity to check them out!
Get to LAX via Flyaway, which connects with the rest of the Metro system at Expo/La Brea and Union Station, or with the Metro Green Line to Aviation Station. Once the Crenshaw/LAX Line is built, it’ll be even easier to get to LAX – and it’ll be exciting to see what the new and improved LAX will look like by then.

Actually, I just received some photos of the art installations, so enjoy!
It is a nice picture of the former TWA terminal at LAX (location of many scenes in the film “Airplane!”), but apart from a change in the wall colors and some new, possibly more modern technology light bulbs in the ceiling, there is no art installation in the picture above. Unless you count the GoToMeeting.com advertisement.
It’s been surprisingly difficult to find photos of the art installations that are free to share! I haven’t had time to go down to LAX to take my own…if you have any to share, please feel free. I’m curious to see people interacting with the art!
