Art At The Airport

The Art at the Airport initiative is presented by the National Gallery for the reopening of the newly expanded Owen Robert’s International Airport (ORIA). It is designed to precedes the launch of a formal ORIA Public Art programme, which is currently being developed by NGCI in partnership with the Cayman Islands Airport Authority. Situated across several areas of the airport, the inaugural displays are drawn entirely from the National Gallery’s permanent collection and past exhibitions and includes artwork by nationally-recognised, award-winning artists and artisans.

Through excerpts of past National Gallery exhibitions, we have sought to explore key areas of Cayman’s visual heritage – maritime history, traditional thatch craft, architecture, and archival photography, as well as contemporary visual art.
