Aruba's Artistic Heart
At Reina Beatrix International Airport you'll find paintings and sculptures from local and international artists in the lounges, prayer hall, meditation room, and sculpture garden; the latter features Ryan Oduber's whimsical Double Nothing domino sculpture, among others. There are also public pieces scattered across the island, like the Lost Fishermen outside the Governor's House, as well as impressive private collections like those of the Aruba Marriott, with one-of-a-kind works from Caribbean masters like Elisa Lejuez; her colorful canvases serve as a tribute to local lore and everyday life, while Elisa herself offers studio tours.
