Airway Heights ponders public art for Highway 2
Last updated 2/7/2019 at 5:08pm
The residents of Airway Heights were tapping into their artistic sides Monday, Jan. 29 at the city’s community meeting kicking of its US-2 Beautification and Public Art Program.
The burgeoning program aims to address preferences for public art and landscape for new roundabouts planned along U.S. Highway 2.
The idea was sparked last year, when the city received a proposal from the Spokane Tribe of Indians for roundabout enhancements in front of their casino. Airway Heights did not have universal standards or requirements for public art at that time, according to city officials.
