  • William LaChance's "Slipstream" is one of nine glass panels to be installed at Lambert this year.
Beginning this month crews at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport will begin hanging a series of glass panels featuring the works of local artists. The nine participants chosen for the display all hail from within 150 miles of St. Louis and include print maker Tom Huck, Lauren Adams of Cosign Project (an art studio currently wrapped in spandex), William LaChance of Maplewood and Edna Patterson-Petty of East St. Louis.

Other artists chosen for the project include:

  • Sarah Giannobile, St. Louis
  • Joan Hall, St. Loui
  • Jana Harper, Clayton
  • Eva Lundsager, University City
  • Mel Watkin, Cobden, Illinois

Look for the panels to brighten up the A and C concourses inside the main terminal. The airport's new Public Art and Culture Program commissioned the project and selected the pieces.
