New Sculpture Brings Creative Sense of Flight to John Wayne Airport

Published on : Wednesday, June 10, 2020

“Volar,” a new sculpture generously donated by renowned artist Betty Gold, is now part of John Wayne Airport’s permanent art collection. The art piece, which means “to fly” is located in Terminal A, at Baggage Claim Carousel 1 in the Arrival (lower) Level of the Riley Terminal.

Volar measures 26-½” high by 37″ long and 20″ wide and is constructed from welded steel panels painted in vibrant green. As one of the earliest female artists to work with welded steel, Gold donated Volar because she always felt that the sculpture would be at home at the Airport.

While Gold is an accomplished artist with experience in metal casting, painting, wood carving, photography, and silk screening, she is primarily a sculptor. Her artwork ranges from 2′ indoor bronze and enameled steel art to monumental outdoor Corten steel (weathered, rust-colored alloy) pieces measuring up to 28′ high.

“My inspiration comes from many directions, experiences, and channels, but my work always begins with the simple act of folding paper,” said Gold. “I create a flat, rectangular structure, deconstruct the parts and reassemble them into the whole, then create a set of drawings and geometric models based on the linear geometry of rotating movement.”

Gold has donated her artwork to other locations in Orange County, including Chapman University, Biola University, The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, and Orange County School of the Arts, along with representation in permanent collections around the world.
