"We thought that it would be a nice addition for the people who were
waiting with all the strain and stress of traveling today," Gluck said.
"We thought it would help eliminate some of the stress and put some
happiness into the waiting process. Plus, it's a way to exhibit the work
for the kids and give them a sense of pride and self-esteem."
The art includes paintings of animals, American flags and landscapes.
The artists range in age from 4 to 13 years.
"I've been going to the class for about a year and a half, but I've
always been drawing at home since I was like 6 years old," said Glendale
resident Jonathan Ondrejko, 13.
Ondrejko's painting of a frog is on display at the airport, but the
fame hasn't gone to the young artist's head.
"I didn't get real excited like jumping up and down all over the place
or anything, but it feels good," he said of his debut into the public art
The art show will remain on display indefinitely, said Airport
Authority spokesman Victor Gill.
"We're pleased as punch to have it," he said Friday. "I hope that a
lot travelers will find their way into that corridor because they'll get
a real treat, especially when they see this art by these very, very
talented young student artists."
The airport is at 2627 Hollywood Way in Burbank.
