Five artists and artist teams have created six new works of public art for the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s PHX SkyTrain stations and connector bridges. The large-scale works include terrazzo floors, glass murals and a sculptural ceiling installation.

The 44th Street, East Economy Lot and Terminal 4 SkyTrain stations, and 44th Street connector bridge feature terrazzo floors by Arizona artists Anne Coe, Daniel Martin Diaz, Fausto Fernandez and Daniel Mayer. Each floor was crafted by 25 workers from Advance Terrazzo in Phoenix.

All of the artists worked closely with the SkyTrain design and construction team of HOK, architects; Gannett Fleming, engineers; and the Hensel Phelps Construction Company; to incorporate the artworks into the design of the SkyTrain facilities.

The projects were commissioned through the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture Public Art Program with Aviation percent-for-art funds. The PHX SkyTrain opened to the public on April 8.

For more information, call the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture at (602) 262-4637.
