Broward County’s Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) presents the sixth installment of its employee artwork exhibition titled I Bet You Didn’t Know. Showcasing 46 artworks by 28 FLL employees, the exhibition is on view through March 17, 2022, in the walkway connecting Terminals 3 and 4.
Curated by Cultural Division Public Art Manager Christina Roldan, I Bet You Didn’t Know features artworks in a variety of mediums including paintings, drawings, collages and acrylic pours, by artists whose diverse jobs include security personnel, vendor operators, flight attendants and other professions.
“Traveling through an airport filled with art makes for an inviting experience. And for the employees who are reporting to work – day in and day out, it’s great to see their own work or that of colleagues displayed prominently in the hallway that connects two of our businest terminals at FLL.”Mark Gale, CEO/Director of Aviation of the Broward County Aviation Department (BCAD).
I Bet You Didn’t Know is a collaborative exhibition program presented by FLL and the Broward Cultural Division’s Public Art & Design Program. Since its debut in August 2018, the rotating employee exhibition has been enthusiastically received by the airport community and visitors, and employee participation has grown significantly.
The exhibition changes every six months to give the more than 15,000 FLL employees a bi-yearly opportunity to be inspired by their colleagues and submit new work. The exhibition also serves as a unique platform to showcase the creative side of airport employees to the airport’s guests.
