The City of Philadelphia’s Percent for Art Program and Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) are pleased to announce a competition to commission artwork for a restroom wall located in Terminal A-West in the International Terminal.

To best meet the needs and expectations of the Airport’s 33.02 million annual passengers (pre-pandemic), PHL is continuing its restroom renovation project that will greatly enhance its ability to efficiently connect travelers to their destinations as well as provide innovative and world-class amenities. A major feature of this project is the overall sense of aesthetic including the architecture, interior design, and fine art — all components that will enrich the public’s airport experience and continue to make PHL a choice destination for travelers.

PHL and the City of Philadelphia’s Percent for Art Program encourages artists from the 11-county Greater Philadelphia region to propose works that respond directly to the characteristics of the specified site, which will enrich the public’s experience at the airport, and be a positive reflection of the region.

Demetra Tassiou's work is inspired by the Greek culture and Art history and minimalistic and acute techniques used in Japanese art. Her artwork are  imaginative reconnections with nature, sea, and the colorful environments that I have yearned for after moving to large urban American cities from the Mediterranean landscapes.
