This week, artist Sheryl Oring reports for duty as the first-ever artist-in-residence at the San Diego International Airport. She’ll be at the airport Monday through Friday, eight hours a day for three months. At the end of the residency, Oring, a performance artist known for civic engagement, will produce a piece for the airport.

“Sheryl has a tall order to take on,” said Constance Y. White, the airport’s art program manager. “From her residency here, she’ll be able to be inspired and create an experience or project that will be really provocative and provide a window into what goes on here at the airport.”

The airport, which has been recognized for its public art and arts programming, has also put out a call for artist submissions to transform a room in Terminal 2 into a multimedia and new-media lounge geared toward teens.
