The creation of the New Salt Lake City International Airport provided the opportunity for the inclusion of 24 large scale murals in restrooms throughout the airport. These vinyl wrap murals are nine feet tall and range from about sixteen to forty feet wide. The images on each of these unique vinyl wraps come from original artwork by 18 different artists working in a variety of mediums, from photography to painting. The murals are intended to create immersive and engaging experiences for travelers. Many of the selected designs, which were chosen from nearly 500 proposals, reflect the spirit, culture, landscape, and community of Salt Lake City.
Nine local and nine national artists who were recommended by the Salt Lake Art Design Board for the Whimsy Wall project. They are: David Adams, Kelly Baisley, Lynn Basa, Adam, Bateman, Laura Bender, Brianna Bennion, Nancy Bradach, Trent Call, Amy Cheng, Stephanie Dunn, Janet Tarjan Erl, Dan Ray Everett, Thom Holzer, Levi Jackson, Traci O’Very Covey, Whitni Parry, Victoria Primicias, and Kerri Warner. Twenty whimsy walls are currently installed throughout terminals one and two, with four additional whimsy walls scheduled for installation upon the completion of terminal three.
