They don't go to the airports to see arts. However, under Portland International Airport's new arts co-ordinator, Wendy Given, an ever-changing arts programme brings museum-quality shows to every year's million-travellers. Having taken on her official duties at the airfield in January, she has been programing exhibits and installation in nine rooms before and after the screening point since the beginning of 2017.

"Despite the instruction to present uncomplicated artwork, Given programmes is not simple for the airport's six- and twelve-month shows. Over 18 month Given has hosted persuasive shows and shown high-minded works by local establish and aspiring artist.
During her first year, she organized a site-specific install by Portland artists Laura Hughes, a show by geographer Corey Arnold, a site-specific wall install by printer and painter Roger Peet, a Portland Esque Studio glassworks retrospective, and a group show on the subject of natural surroundings co-ordinated with Charles A. Hartman Fine Art Galerie.
In January she began coordinating several new exhibitions, including a sophisticated show of works by Todd Clark's visiting contemporaries, a show of unearthed Portland sculpture by James Allen, and a sparkling show of large-format fibre artworks by Xander Griffith, an emergent national. The mixture of new and experienced performers is a hallmark of the airport's arts programme, which is deliberately integrative and has an uncomplicated, open entry procedure.
Griefith sent a suggestion to Given's e-mail-adress, which is included in the call to performers on the airport's website. In the first weeks of his show, Griffith got an order and has since got another six, with another seven on the horizon. "Airports' arts programme does a great job with a humble $100,000 per year grant, which encompasses Given's salaries, the servicing and preservation of the works of artwork in the airport's ongoing collections, and the revolving arts programme.
Performers who produce new works for an exhibition or site-specific works will be paid a fee of $1,500. There is also a hotel with a good service and insurances. Single works cannot be rated more than $10,000, which, according to Given, opens the programme for mid-careers or emergent performers or for those who want to try something new.
The 40-year-old SFO Museum has 36 full-time and 20 part-time workers and a purse of almost 5.5 million dollars. Denver International Airport, which has a highly acclaimed arts programme, has a $300,000 to $400,000 operating and maintaining budget that includes graphics designers and installers and five full-time personnel, among them a co-ordinator of popup programs for major upcoming shows.
Portland's programme clearly focuses on the arts. "Arts are an integrated part of the passengers' experience," says Walter Marchbanks, head of client support at the Frankfurt International Airports, who is in charge of the arts programme. "Take the airport's E expansion course, which will open in 2020: This includes a climate- and light-controlled showcase for the Given to programme programme.
