Walk through one of a handful of free art museums that remains open to the public 24/7, 365. No kidding! With more than 900 artworks, the Phoenix Airport Museum (PAM) is fulfilling its mission to promote Arizona’s unique art and culture. Surpassed only by SFO International Airport, PAM is believed to be the second largest airport arts program in the United States. While art was always a part of PHX Airport since the 1960s, PAM now boasts over 50 exhibit spaces. In 2018, PAM celebrated its 30-year anniversary as a formal art museum.

Join art and aviation aficionados, Bobby Walker and Michael Zirulnik with MoW on a walk through some of the Phoenix Airport Museum’s highlights, including spaces you might otherwise have overlooked. With Bobby’s construction insights and Michael’s design background, this is sure to be a fun journey across the airport on foot and rail.

Bobby Walker is a Senior Preconstruction Project Manager at DPR. He brings with him extensive experience in the construction of art museums, performing arts centers, and archival storage buildings. Previously, he was Chief Construction Cost Estimator of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. His love for the arts was born out his passion for architecture and construction of the facilities housing artistic creations. Bobby currently sits on the ASU Art Museum’s Creative Impact Board. As a Marine Corps veteran, he is a founding member of the Phoenix VA Medical Center’s Veteran Experience Workgroup. A second generation Phoenician, he resides in midtown with his spouse and two dogs.

Dr. Michael L. Zirulnik is a published author, thought leader, artist, and active community member who spent a decade in the aviation sector. He currently serves as Executive Director of The Varsity Project—a bespoke communication consultancy focused on dynamically improving organizational efficacy. He is happily married, a lover of dogs, and an avid NPR listener.
