Airport Partnership with Art in Public Places Offers New Photo Op Spot at Bailey Terminal

Thanks to the Charlotte County Airport Authority’s partnership with the Arts & Humanities Council of Charlotte County, Punta Gorda Airport (PGD) has a new colorful photo op spot for passengers to capture a selfie and share on social media.

Local artist Larry E. Palmer painted a Charlotte Harbor sunset mural on a 10-foot wall in the corridor that connects ticketing and baggage claim in the Bailey Terminal. The scene is completed with two bar-height Adirondack chairs sourced from Ocean Isles Outdoor, live greenery provided by TROPEX and a full-color PGD logo installed by Monarch Direct.
