Airport Public Art Program

These installations were conceived as part of a unified program of Art+Technology that showcases the diversity, creativity, and energy that define San Jose and Silicon Valley.

Art+Technology is broadly defined as:

  • Art that uses technology
  • Art that is inspired by technology
  • Art that is developed with technology
  • Art that comments on technology

Some of the artworks at the Airport will be permanently on display. Others will be shown for several years then replaced with new works that respond to the theme of Art+Technology.

Please note: Artworks located in the Terminal B Concourse are behind the TSA security checkpoint and are available only to ticketed passengers. Artworks in the pre-security area of Terminal B are available to the general public.

The Airport’s Art+Technology program is the product of a four-year master planning effort involving community members and policy makers to model a public art program that is unique to this region.

The San José Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Program (OCA) manages the program in close collaboration with the Airport.

Funding

The City of San Jose Public Art Program is funded through an ordinance that allows 1% of municipal capital improvement project budgets to be set aside for public art.

Accolades

City’s Public Art Program Receives Two National Accolades for Innovative Projects and Programming
