Burlington City Arts curates art exhibits in three areas of the airport: the Skyway, the area above the escalator and the walls facing security for Gates 1-8. Whether you've arrived early for a flight or are waiting to pick up passengers, do take the time to look around!

In September and October, Jennifer Hubbard's paintings appear in the Skyway and offer a contemporary perspective of Vermont's people and landscapes. Photographer Krista Cheney's frozen still lifes, capturing flowers and other elements of nature encased in blocks of ice, are mounted in the Gates. And Rooster Robinson's abstract color field paintings — described as a "dance of push/pull" with shape, line and color — hang by the escalator. If you're going up, be sure to turn around and look at the wall behind you. But watch your step!

Through November and December, the Skyway features abstract paintings of vines and vegetables from artist Mary Hill. Kate Longmaid's floral still lifes, on view in the Gates, are inspired by the beauty of Vermont. Kathryn Wiegers' painted murals, which she calls "studies of nature and mankind," appear by the escalator.

Burlington City Arts organise des expositions d'œuvres d'art à trois endroits dans l'aéroport : dans le Skyway, au-dessus de l'escalier mécanique et sur les murs qui font face à la sécurité pour les portes 1-8. Que vous soyez arrivé à l'avance pour votre vol ou que vous attendiez des passagers, prenez le temps de regarder autour de vous!

En septembre et en octobre, les toiles de Jennifer Hubbard, qui présentent une vision contemporaine des habitants et des paysages du Vermont, sont accrochées dans le Skyway. Pour contempler les natures mortes de la photographe Krista Cheney, représentant des fleurs et d'autres éléments de la nature emprisonnés dans des blocs de glace, allez du côté des portes. Enfin, près de l'ascenseur, vous pourrez voir des abstractions chromatiques de Rooster Robinson, qui ont déjà été décrites comme une danse de formes, de lignes et de couleurs, en mouvement constant. Si vous montez, ne manquez pas de vous retourner pour regarder le mur derrière vous. Mais faites attention à la marche!

Les peintures murales de Kathryn Wiegers, qu'elle appelle « études de la nature et de l'humanité », se trouvent près de l'escalier mécanique.

  • Explore Hidden Wilderness Along the Burlington Wildways

    You might not realize it from the hustle and bustle of downtown, the postwar suburban sprawl of the New North End, or the hip postindustrial South End, but Burlington is pretty wild. Like, Henry David Thoreau/Walden Woods kind of wild. Despite its urban trappings, Vermont's largest city hides a treasure trove of natural wonders. The trick is knowing where to find them.

  • Get a Taste of Vermont at the Burlington Farmers Market

    "Farmers market" and "Vermont" are basically synonyms, right? The Green Mountain State is known for its cheese, its maple and its dedication to local food. And in Vermont's largest city, the Burlington Farmers Market is a community fixture. A trip to the market is a weekend ritual all season long.
