Midway Airport originally opened in 1927 as Chicago’s Municipal Airport. After the 1942 Battle of Midway, the airport continued to play a role in World War II. It was used by the U.S. Military because of its runway capabilities and mid-continent position. Midway Airport was often the stopping point for crewmen and aircraft as they traveled from the east to west coast. In 1949, the City of Chicago officially renamed the airport in honor of the Battle of Midway.The new Midway Airport Terminal building opened in March and is home to other works of art including a suspended sculpture of a bird in flight. The sculpture, designed by Ralph Helmick, is composed of 2,500 small cast metal sculptures of various aircraft and is located at the Ticketing Lobby. On the south end of the Ticketing Level, a large mural of glass panels by Karl Wirsum celebrates a child’s fascination with flight. On the Lower Level, near baggage claim, photographs by Dawoud Bey, Kathleen Eaton and Bob Thall honor Chicago’s ethnic diversity by depicting families from various Chicago communities. These works of art are made possible by The Chicago Public Art Program, which requires that 1.33% of City of Chicago construction budgets be dedicated to artwork for the premises.
