A number of airport partners, vendors and collaborators are doing their part to ﬁght the spread of COVID-19. From artists sewing masks to share with friends and neighbors, to the airport’s contracted art conservator donating their professional grade protective equipment to hospitals, and artists of varied disciplines simply creating work to help us all process and understand these times, we are proud of how people are coming together for the greater good.
Kristina Wong, our Fall 2019 Performing Arts Residency artist, is sewing masks for ﬁrst responders and hospital staﬀ. Read about her efforts here.
Rosa Lowinger & Associates, San Diego International Airport’s art conservator, frequently uses N95 masks, safety glasses and nitrile gloves when working with various chemicals. Rosa and her team recently donated much of their stock to UCLA Medical Center near their oﬃces, and Jersey City Medical Center where the lead conservator’s sister works as an ER nurse.
Current and past SAN Temporary Exhibition artists, Michelle Montjoy, Katie Ruiz, Lauren Siry and more are sewing hundreds of masks themselves. You can view their efforts and/or follow them on Instagram.
