SFO Wins National Award for Excellence in Print Media
Airports Council International-North America honors Airport for Museum exhibition brochures

SAN FRANCISCO – November 8, 2016 – Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA), which represents governing bodies that own and operate commercial airports across the United States and Canada, recently honored SFO with their 2016 Excellence in Airport Marketing, Communications, and Customer Service Award for Print Communications. The award-winning entry was a suite of brochures for SFO Museum exhibitions produced during the fiscal year 2015-2016. These publications are produced by the curatorial and graphics team at SFO Museum for free distribution in galleries located throughout the terminals of San Francisco International Airport.

“SFO Museum is proud of its important role in the guest experience at San Francisco International Airport, and we are very happy to see the consistent excellence of our team recognized by this award,” said SFO Museum Director and Chief Curator Blake Summers. “We enjoy the design challenge of representing each exhibition in brochure format and providing Airport visitors with a keepsake of their experience here.”


SFO Museum

SFO Museum was established by the Airport Commission in 1980 for the purposes of humanizing the Airport environment, providing visibility for the unique cultural life of San Francisco, and providing educational services for the traveling public.  The Museum was granted initial accreditation from the American Alliance of Museums in 1999, reaccredited in 2005, and has the distinction of being the only accredited museum in an airport.  Today, SFO Museum features approximately twenty galleries throughout the Airport terminals displaying a rotating schedule of art, history, science, and cultural exhibitions, as well as the San Francisco Airport Commission Aviation Library and Louis A. Turpen Aviation Museum, a permanent collection dedicated to the history of commercial aviation.  To browse current and past exhibitions, research our collection, or for more information, please visit  Follow us on,, or
