Latest temporary art exhibits on display at airport

Installations highlight artists with local ties

The next series of art to be featured in the Indianapolis Airport Authority’s (IAA) temporary art program has arrived and is on display in the main ticketing hall and Concourse B at the Indianapolis International Airport (IND).

IND’s temporary art program introduces new works to the airport space while complementing the IAA’s permanent art collection.

The latest exhibits showcase a master in the field of wood sculpture and an artist whose unique take on the collage medium is a nod to the increasing diversity of Indianapolis’ international communities. The installations feature the work of artists with ties to the local community and will be on display through Nov. 10.

Indianapolis-based sculptor Betty Scarpino has worked in wood for more than 30 years. Her pieces start with an object that has been created using a lathe, in a process known as turning, which she then cuts apart and continues to work by carving it or adding other turned elements.

Her design process includes carefully considering the wood’s natural grain, creating a variety of textures within the piece, and developing shapes that are inspired by a sense of the “universal feminine.” Attention to detail in the final surface finish completes the cycle, with a resulting sculpture that is fluid, full of life and movement, organic, and sensuous. Scarpino’s work can be found on Concourse B in the display case near the connector to Concourse A.

Considered a master in her field, Scarpino’s work has been placed in the permanent collections of the Renwick Gallery of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution (Washington, D.C.), the Mint Museum of Craft and Design in North Carolina, and the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, among many others. She considers the pleasure of becoming lost in the creative process as integral to her life, and she believes her creative endeavors are a pathway for the uniquely human activities of giving and receiving.
