Resource Description
Federal Inspection Services Project Background: In order to respond to the rapid growth in international arrival activities anticipated in 2017 and beyond, SAN will re-conceive a Federal Inspection Services Facility (FIS) that: adds greater flexibility; increases FIS capacity level; and utilizes the newest processing efficiency introduced by the Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The FIS project presents exciting opportunities for the integration of public art into the site.
Opportunity Description
Atrium Suspended Public Artwork: This is an opportunity for an artist or artist team to design, fabricate and install a suspended artwork within the "meeter/greeter" lobby of the FIS facility. This area is where loved ones await and unite with arriving international passengers. The artwork design should be light and airy, and communicate a sense of welcome. The selected artist may consider subtly activating the work with analog kinetic features or including integrated lighting elements. The artwork must be composed of high quality and durable materials that require minimal maintenance. Estimated Project Budget: $250,000 Glass Partition Wall Public Art Project: This is an opportunity for an artist or artist team to design, fabricate and install an art glass treatment within an approximately 270' x 13' partition wall along the south edge of the baggage claim hall of the FIS facility. The glass artwork must be a functionally-integrated architectural element that brings color and vibrancy to the site while also acting as a translucent screening device. The artwork design may be composed of abstract elements or feature narrative content that unfolds across the width of the wall.
