art at the airportBurlington City Arts curates art exhibits at the airport in three areas: 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 have a look around!

Through June, Donna Bourne shows her soft-focus, travel-inspired landscapes and ethereal paintings at the Gates; Brooke Monte's mystical paintings line the Skyway.

In July and August, members of the Milton Artists Guild hang a group exhibit in various media in the Gates area and Skyway.

Finally, for all three months, Gisela Alpert's large-scale floral oil paintings can be seen over the escalator. If you're going up, be sure to turn around and look at the wall behind you. But watch your step!

All these artists live in the Burlington area. 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 prendre votre vol ou que vous attendiez des passagers, prenez le temps de regarder autour de vous!

Jusqu'en juin, Donna Bourne expose, dans le secteur des portes, ses paysages flous et ses tableaux éthérés inspirés de ses voyages, et Brooke Monte offre ses œuvres mystiques au regard des passants dans le Skyway.

En juillet et en août, des membres de la Milton Artists Guild travaillant sur divers médias présentent une exposition de groupe dans la zone des portes et le Skyway.

Et durant les trois mois, au-dessus de l'escalier mécanique, admirez le travail de Gisela Alpert, qui peint des fleurs à l'huile sur de grandes toiles. Si vous montez, n'oubliez pas de vous retourner pour regarder le mur derrière vous – en prenant soin de ne pas tomber!

Tous ces artistes vivent dans la région de Burlington. Vous trouverez des exemples de leurs œuvres à l'aéroport et sur leurs sites individuels.

  • 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.

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.
