ROCHESTER, Minn.- Your next flight out of Rochester could look a lot different.

The Rochester International Airport is looking to spruce up its terminal by adding art.

To do that, they’re looking to add some flare to the inside of the terminal with art. They’re launching a new art program called "Arts Elevated."

“We're really excited to bring some new life into the main terminal building by showcasing local and regional artists,” said Tiana O’Conor. “Some vibrancy that art brings to get some paintings and some photographs up on the walls it can start conversations about what's going on in the community and really create a sense of place.”

She works at the airport and tells KIMT they’re looking for a variety of two-dimensional artwork that will add excitement to the blank walls.

It can be a conversation starter for passengers including Dave and Vicki Keyser, who made the trip to the Med City all the way from Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The art showcased in the airport will rotate every 6 months.

The first installation of artwork will be displayed in January 2020.
