Constance Y. White is Art Program Manager for the San Diego International Airport. Since her appointment in July 2006, she has successfully completed the Airport Art Master Plan, which includes a framework and guidelines for the three components of the Airport Art Program: Temporary and Rotating Exhibits, Performing Arts, and Public Art. In her previous position as Public Art Program Coordinator for the City of Dallas, Office of Cultural Affairs (1997–2006), White managed projects with budget ranging from $3,000 to more than $1 million, many of which where design team collaborations resulting in integration of public art into the city's infrastructure. Arts-based community development and community partnerships were important to the success of the many projects she has managed.
