Rogue Valley International – Medford Airport Unveils New Art Display in Terminal

The Rogue Valley International – Medford Airport is pleased to announce a new art display in the terminal. On July 21, 2014 at 1:00 pm, the Airport will hold an Open House to unveil new photographic art work created by Brian Pechtel, a respected local professional photographer who lives in the Rogue Valley.

Hunter Communications, a local fiber optic internet and voice provider, assisted in purchasing the art and seeing the project through to completion. Hunter CEO Rich Ryan commented, “We have been investing in the Southern Oregon community since 1994 and always jump at the opportunity to share our love of this area with others. The Airport often provides our first impression to travelers and visitors of all kinds, and we believe it is important to ensure this is a memorable impression by faithfully representing the beautiful, amazing region in which we reside.”

Hunter Communications has built over 1,000 miles of fiber optic network in Southern Oregon; provides networking and voice services for businesses, schools, municipalities, and emergency services; and continues to invest in our local economy.

“We’re very excited to see this display installed.” stated Bern Case, Airport Director. “To showcase scenic photography of the beautiful area we live in has been a goal since the terminal was completed. We’re appreciative of Hunter Communication and the commitment they’ve made to make this project such a success.”

There will be a total of nine 60 x 90 inch panels spanning the area over the ticketing counters in the lobby. The photographic images represent a variety of scenic locations in the Rogue Valley as well as beautiful Crater Lake. Throughout the year, the images will be rotated with nine additional panels.

For further information on the Open House, please contact Bern Case, Airport Director, at (541) 776-7222. Parking tickets will be validated for the event.
