Created over a span of three weeks during non-working hours, the murals were crafted by the talented Airport Custodial Worker, Gail Stevens, with invaluable assistance from Airport Building Maintenance Mechanic, Eric Jock. The 8 feet by 16 feet paintings serve as a testament to the dedication and creativity of the Plattsburgh International Airport team.

Gail Stevens, though not a professional painter, invested approximately 20 hours of hard work into these murals. Meticulous attention to detail is evident in every brushstroke, and Gail's passion for creating art shines through. Notably, she projected the initial images on the wall, employing her freehand skills for the depiction of Clinton Community College's buildings.

The decision to include Clinton Community College in the mural was a deliberate one, as Chris Kreig, the Airport Director, sought to highlight the educational institution's significance within the community. The murals serve not only as decorative elements but also as a celebration of community pride and collaboration.

"We are thrilled to showcase Clinton Community College within our airport space. These murals not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of our lobby but also serve as a visual testament to our role in the community." remarked Chris Kreig.

Clinton Community College extends its heartfelt gratitude to Gail Stevens for her artistic prowess and commitment to this project. The collaboration between Gail, Eric, and the entire airport team underscores the airport's dedication to fostering community connections and celebrating local institutions.
