Six artists have put their passions on full display by upcycling old Delta aircraft parts into works of art at an open-air gallery event hosted by Delta in Miami to celebrate art week.

As part of the airline’s ongoing efforts to support emerging talent, Delta commissioned pieces from these six up-and-coming artists to elevate their work to new audiences and showcase their talents during one of the art world’s biggest weekends.

The immersive galleries – both in the air and on the ground – featured commissioned pieces as well as past work from the artists, inspiring guests to explore their own connections between art and travel.

The commissioned pieces were crafted from handpicked materials from retired Delta aircraft. Each artist utilized their own creative vision to transform these materials into unique pieces of art, with many exploring new mediums and disciplines.

While Delta continues to boost its presence in South Florida with additional flights from Miami, it is also investing in the local arts community with a contribution to Arts Access at The Miami Foundation.

In celebration of the partnership with these six Miami-born and based artists, the donation will help provide access and arts education to children in the Miami area to inspire the next generation of artists to take flight.
