The Piedmont Triad Airport Authority and Wrangler have joined forces to bring 4 Jeansboro Jean Statues to the interior of PTI.  Four artists living and working in the Piedmont Triad area were selected from a group of 25 submissions.  The goal is to encourage and promote the work of local painters and to enhance the feeling of the uniqueness of our community when passengers arrive at PTI.

Members of the PTI workforce, from security to food services, were represented on the selection panel for the project.  They selected work that included the use of representational images to celebrate the community’s history, nature and culture, national patriotism and the wonder of flying.

Each of the four finalists received an award of $300. The finished pieces will be located at PTI on both concourses and in each bag claim area.   “We see the installation of these pieces as an opportunity to share the artists’ vision of our community and airport through the Jean statues,” said Kevin Baker, Executive Director of the Airport Authority. “It is another opportunity for us to enhance the look and feel of the terminal building through the art of regional significance.”

Artists chosen were: Geri Glavis of Greensboro, Jeffrey McGuire of Pfafftown, Tierra Spainhour of Lewisville and Bailey Wingler of Salisbury.
