Long Beach Airport is commemorating its centennial year with the addition of a new, public art installation. The large vinyl mural, “A Flight to History,” by renowned Southern California-based artist Marconi, is on display at Parking Structure A and measures 60 feet by 30 feet. Through a nationwide call for art submissions, Marconi’s work was selected from a pool of nearly 100 applicants in partnership with the Arts Council of Long Beach. Artists each submitted up to three complete works, with the selected artist receiving $10,000. Smaller works by five runner-up artists will be displayed soon in a special post-security temporary exhibit planned for the North and South Concourses. Each of those semifinalists were paid $1,500 for their art.
