Westfield, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey honor heroes and enhance the customer experience with interactive art project
Westfield and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) teamed up with the Global Angel Wings Project to celebrate the heroes at the USO, Port Authority Police Department and all those who keep us safe with a live painting of red, white and blue angel wings at Newark Liberty Airport Terminal B on Friday.
Renowned street artist Colette Miller captivated travelers at Terminal B with her live painting, which will remain on display for the next four weeks inside Terminal B. As has become a tradition all over the world, travelers immediately began taking their own pictures in front of the iconic wings.
Miller launched the Global Angel Wings Project after painting her first pair of wings on the streets of downtown Los Angeles in 2012. The wings, which are meant to uplift and inspire humanity, soon became a global sensation and took off on social media. Miller has traveled around the world painting angel wings ever since.
“We are happy to participate in the Global Angel Wings Project with Westfield as a way to honor our U.S. Armed Forces and law enforcement heroes who protect us every day,” said Thomas L. Bosco, Port Authority Aviation Director. “We’re especially pleased to feature this project at Terminal B, not far from the location where we recently provided a home for a new USO facility. God bless our troops.”
“These patriotic angel wings engage and inspire passengers from all over the world, creating a truly unique airport experience,” said Sherri Smith, Westfield’s General Manager at Newark Terminals A and B. “We, along with the PANYNJ are inspired by the message of the wings – that together we are united and stand strong.”
Newark Liberty travelers will be able to take photos with the wings and post them to social media to win a custom painting by Colette Miller. Travelers who use #iflyEWR and show their angel wings post to participating restaurants and retailers in Terminal A or B will receive special discounts.
