The JIA Arts Commission purchased the sculpture Hoy es Hoy from the J. Johnson Gallery to be placed in the renovated "flag pavilion" area. This new area (on the corner of Pecan Park Road and Yankee Clipper Drive, adjacent to the JAA Administration Building) features the sculpture set against curved black granite walls with a waterfall.
Hoy es Hoy is a 13-foot bronze sculpture of a woman's head. The artist, Javier Marin drew his inspiration from many different culturesóMexican, Native American, and Asian. This piece is representative of the Airport's value of multi-culturalism and places the City on an international level for public art. Additionally, to the JIA Arts Commission, Hoy es Hoy is the first piece by an international artist placed at the Airport and symbolizes the forward thinking and positive progress of our program.
