YYJ brings art gallery to travelers

'The arrangement is really a win-win,' Geoff Dickson, Victoria Airport Authority, president and CEO.

For more than a decade the Victoria Airport has displayed local artwork, and now it’s teamed with the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria to take the art to the next level, literally.

“This is an exceptional opportunity for both parties. We learned that the AGGV required display space in preparation for their upcoming renovations and, we had just recently built an art display wall in the Upper Passenger Departure Lounge as part of our recent airport improvements,” said Geoff Dickson, Victoria Airport Authority, president and CEO.

“It assists the gallery by providing needed space, it provides opportunity for local artists to exhibit their work, and it enhances the space and airport experience for our travellers. The arrangement is really a win-win.”

The artwork displayed is available for sale and interested patrons can contact the AGGV at 250-384-4171or online at aggv.ca/rental-sales/faq for more information.
