Phoenix Sky Harbor Artwork: A Viewing Guide

It's hard to escape trips to the airport this time of year. Most of us either travel during the holidays or get airport duty when friends and family roll in and out of town. Instead of dreading the experience, make time while you're at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to explore artworks exhibited in terminals, Sky Train stations, and the rental car center. They're part of something called the Phoenix Airport Museum, which exhibits items in the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport Public Art Collection.

The collection includes more than 900 works of contemporary art. Most are exhibited at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport rather than tucked away in storage. Some are exhibited at Phoenix Deer Valley Airport, and some at Phoenix Goodyear Airport.
