Invisible People

San Diego International Airport is giving visibility to a segment of the San Diego population so often overlooked: the homeless. The Airport Art Program is currently presenting an exhibit of San Diego artist Neil Shigley’s woodblock print portraits of the homeless who live in downtown San Diego, where the artist lives and works.

People like Luther, 49 years old, whom the artist portrays in this print.

Called Invisible People,  the exhibit features 10 large woodblock prints of the chronic homeless in downtown San Diego.  Every year, the Airport Authority partners with the United Way to support social causes.  This exhibition is a collaboration between the Airport Authority and the United Way to inform the public of the issue of homelessness and the available resources to support those in need.

You’ll need to be a ticketed passenger to view the exhibit, as it is located post-security in the upstairs corridor connecting Terminal 2 East and Terminal 2 West. It will be there through July 1, 2009.

By the way, the Airport Authority has issued an Open Call for Exhibits to organizations, groups or individuals interested in submitting proposals for cultural exhibits at San Diego International Airport. There is no deadline. Click here for more information.
