ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Residents, travelers, fans and visitors can help the Albuquerque International Sunport claim the title of “Best U.S. Airport for Art” by voting once per day until November 11th at http://www.10best.com/awards/travel/best-u-s-airports-for-art/. The contest is part of USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards.
The Sunport was chosen by a panel of experts to compete in the art category. Among the 113-piece collection are the iconic “Dream of Flight” by Lincoln Fox, located between the A and B concourses and the nearly pristine 1914 Curtiss Biplane that graces the Great Hall.
“What an honor to be recognized, along with the other deserving airports, for what is a priceless collection of New Mexico artwork,” Mayor Berry said. “We encourage residents and visitors to go online and vote for our airport art collection, which we feel is the best of the best.”
