Jefferson Artists Visit SD Airport to View Their Award-Winning Work

Jeff 1.JPGWith their award-winning art on display for thousands of travelers making their way through San Diego’s Lindbergh Field, Jefferson MS students visited the airport Wednesday for their own personal viewing.   Instructor Linda Kallas and 33 advanced art students made the trip.

Using the theme, “Converging Ingenuities,” the class produced what resembles a 36-foot long quilt containing 34 individual designs reflecting air, water, fire, earth, animals, chemistry, physics and technology.  Kallas, a longtime art instructor at Jefferson, designed the centerpiece, featuring an eye surrounded by a microscope.  Jefferson Group.JPG

The piece was recently selected the grand prize winner in a contest sponsored by the Sand Diego International Airport Art Program.  It will be on display in the newly remodeled Terminal 2 until the end of the year.  Click OUSD Facebook to view more photos.
