The Airport Art Program is proud to welcome the world to the United States with a large collection of art in the Immigrations Corridor of Concourse E. Included are several permanent installations and the Immigration Corridor Gallery which holds most of the Program’s direct purchase collection.

Platinum palladium print, 1987
Purchased by the Airport in 1994

Over 400 works of art have been purchased or commissioned for the collection from a variety of artists since the Airport Art Program’s inception in 1994. As a result, the art on display in the Immigrations Corridor Gallery is as eclectic as it is thought-provoking. Most works were acquired by single or small-scale purchases from exhibitions held in the Atrium Gallery for the Direct Purchase Collection.
