Frank Hunter “Oak Over Water”
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.
