International Airport in Mumbai, Maharashtra.

Airports are normally places people want to rush in and out of, but the developers of the new Terminal 2 at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai hope to change that. Among the many benefits for flyers coming through Terminal 2 is the opportunity to take in a vast amount of traditional and contemporary Indian art via an ambitious public arts program.

Over 7,000 art objects, including antiquities procured from 27 states within India, will eventually be on display, as will 100 commissioned contemporary art works. (Currently 2,000 objects are on view at the terminal, which begins international operations on Feb. 12.)
