Art galleries in Argentine airports

In May and June, Espacio Arte, the program that promotes the works of local artists in the Argentine airports concessioned to Aeropuertos Argentina 2000, inaugurated new art galleries in the Puerto Iguazú (photo) and Mendoza air terminals, respectively. This cultural undertaking allows artists to show their work in different parts of the country in airports that participate in the program, which is already functioning in the airports of Salta, Jujuy, Resistencia, Córdoba, Buenos Aires, Mar del Plata and Bariloche. New EspacioArtes will soon open in the airports of Bahía Blanca, Tucumán and Neuquén. Thus, passengers who walk through these terminals have a contact with art works that they might not have otherwise, and the artists have the opportunity to exhibit in more cities than the one in which they live, without having to spend a penny.
