Performing Arts Residency Program

The Art Program is proud to launch its new Performing Arts Residency Program in 2016. The Performing Arts Residency Program provides a platform for the development and performance of new work that simultaneously enriches the airport environment and cultivates the regional performing arts community. This opportunity is a process-oriented residency program open to contemporary performing arts in all disciplines—dance, music, theater, as well as cross-disciplinary digital media. 

Fern Street Circus is the first performance group selected for the Residency Program. Fern Street Circus serves families and transforms neighborhoods through the performance and teaching of circus arts. They are known for transcending barriers between people of varying cultures and languages, combining physical and theatrical skills, and merging the magnificent and the everyday.

Ongoing Concert Series

The Art Program has organized a new schedule of singer-songwriters, composers, musicians and dancers for our Ongoing Concert Series. Performances take place every third Thursday of the month from 11 am-1 pm in Terminal 2 baggage claim and Sunset Cove.
