JAX Lauded For Using Art To Enhance Traveler Experience

The London Observer has named Jacksonville International (JAX) one of the top four airports that adds art to travelers’ overall experience.

The airport offers public art that lines the walls in the Haskell Art Gallery, offering a wide variety of artwork, and the new Observation Gallery, showing displays commemorating the 70-year history of Naval Air Station Jacksonville.

“We’re thrilled to receive this type of recognition and to know that our efforts to produce the best travel experience possible are appreciated,” says Steve Grossman, CEO and executive director of the Jacksonville Airport Authority.

The airport also has permanent art at its entrance roadway, ticketing and baggage-claim area, restroom entrances, escalator space, large windows at the end of each concourse and the connector walkway between the two parking garages.

A new piece will be installed in March over the recently opened walkway between the ticketing area and center courtyard. There will also be temporary exhibits displayed on kiosks in the walkway and post-security.

The other three airports on the London Observer’s list were Incheon International (ICN), Heathrow (LHR) and Schiphol (AMS).
