The Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) hosted an open house last weekend to show off the new U.S. departures terminal at the Lynden Pindling International Airport. The 247,000 sq. ft. eco-friendly terminal is the first phase of the $409.5 million airport redevelopment project. Amongst it’s highlights are artworks created specifically for the space by Bahamian artists John Beadle, Nicole Sweeting, Susan Katz-Lightbourn and John Cox.
Of the 12 artists selected to display artwork throughout the airport’s new facilities, four of them are from Popopstudios Center for the Visual Arts. The work of Popopstudios artists Susan Katz-Lightbourn and John Cox is already hanging as part of the the first phase of the airport redevelopment. Art by Popopstudios’ JP Saddleton and Dede Brown will be featured along with other Bahamian artists in upcoming phases.
