The COVID-19 pandemic paused the installation of new art in many places, including the Indianapolis International Airport.

The airport displays permanent pieces, and rotates work from local artists on a regular basis. Katie Norman is its arts program and marketing specialist, and WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with her by phone about the program's plans, its ability to help the arts community, and about her own digital art.

The Arts Council of Indianapolis manages the Art at the Airport program. Artists interested in displaying their work can visit its website at indyarts.org.
