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 March and April, the Skyway features Jeffrey Herwood’s photography of Vermont’s “seldom-seen scenes” — from a beam of light after a rainstorm to an early-morning sunrise. Emily Mitchell’s colorful paintings, depicting nature’s bubbles, trees and birds, are on view in the Gates.

Starting in May, painter Judy Hawkins’ landscapes of Vermont marshes, fields and skies appear in the Skyway. Nancy Calicchio’s en plein air works play with light and shadow, and hang in the Gates.

All season long, Cameron Davis’ “Endless Spring” series, capturing a spirit of renewal and awakening, can be seen above the escalator. If you’re going up, be sure to turn around and look at the wall behind you. But watch your step!

All of these artists live in Vermont. Please enjoy examples of their work at the airport and on their individual websites.

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 mars et en avril, dans le Skyway, vous pourrez voir les photos de Jeffrey Herwood, qui représentent des « moments furtifs » du Vermont — comme un rayon de lumière après une averse ou un lever de soleil à l’aube. Les toiles colorées d’Emily Mitchell, qui dépeignent les petites choses de la nature, des arbres et des oiseaux, sont exposées dans le secteur des portes.

Dès le mois de mai, venez admirer les paysages du Vermont – marais, champs et ciels – de la peintre Judy Hawkins, dans le Skyway. Les œuvres réalisées en plein air de Nancy Calicchio, aux magnifiques jeux d’ombre et de lumière, seront suspendues dans le secteur des portes.

Durant toute la saison, au-dessus de l’escalier mécanique, ne manquez pas d’admirer la série « Endless Spring » de Cameron Davis, qui capte l’esprit de renouveau et d’éveil propre au printemps. Si vous montez, ne manquez pas de vous retourner pour regarder le mur derrière vous. Mais faites attention à la marche!

Tous ces artistes vivent au Vermont. Vous pourrez voir certaines de leurs œuvres à l’aéroport et d’autres sur leurs sites Web.

  • Celebrating the 'Pandemic All-Stars' Who Helped Vermont Through a Less-Than-Stellar Time

    This special issue highlights consensus favorites alongside unknown individuals quietly doing an outstanding job. We sought out Vermonters who went above and beyond in roles that became more difficult or dangerous during the pandemic — from the chefs and community volunteers who creatively kept us fed to the wastewater managers who tested our poo for viral markers. We also surveyed our readers on the people, places and programs that kept them going — and going.

    With out-of-state travel and indoor recreation prohibited for much of the pandemic, Vermonters were fortunate to have, well, Vermont as a backyard playground. Many embraced the opportunity to explore closer to home and fall in love with the Green Mountain State all over again. From pampered getaways to spectacular outdoor destinations to go-to walking trails, here are the choice spots that helped locals manage a year-plus at home.

    With outdoor dining, it's all about the views. Waterworks Food + Drink serves up a so-close-you-almost-need-a-rain-poncho view of the Winooski River from its plant-filled patio. "It's just beautiful there!" said one diner. For the past year, the restaurant experience was all about safety, too. Waterworks delivered on that front with streamlined takeout, strict social distancing and free weekly grocery pickup for employees when the restaurant was temporarily closed. "We have a great staff that raises the bar," owner David Abdoo told Seven Days in November. "They're my No. 1 concern."

  • 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.
