The city of Glendale is looking at installing a new public arts project to commemorate Thunderbird Field.
The former airfield at 55th Avenue and Acoma Drive was home to pilot training during World War II. The airfield is an important part of Arizona’s World War II history.
The Glendale Arts Commission will discuss the potential project at its meeting on Thursday.
A residential development is being built at the site with an opportunity for an arts project, according to city documents.
The installation would be located at the southwest corner of 55th Avenue and Acoma.
Part of the Thunderbird Field site became home to the Thunderbird School of Global Management. Thunderbird is now part of Arizona State University which sold the business school’s Glendale campus to Arizona Christian University.
