Call for Artists - 2017 Art in the Airport
Fort Wayne International Airport is currently seeking artists to display their artwork in the galleries at the airport for the 2017 calendar year as part of the “Art in the Airport” program. The “Art in the Airport” initiative is a completely free program - the airport does not charge artists to display their work nor does it take any commission on pieces sold. Artwork is displayed on a quarterly basis (January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-December) in the large gallery on the secured side of the terminal (near the air museum) and in the small gallery on the non-secured side of the terminal (near the ticket counters).
At this time, the program is limited to hanging, framed artwork and photography (no sculptures, pottery, jewelry, or large installations). Artists should have at least 30 pieces to fill both galleries, and every piece should be framed and labeled. (Artists that do not have 30 pieces may collaborate with other artists for the display.) Artists are also highly encouraged to create a bio poster with contact information so that any inquires regarding the artwork can be directed to the artist.
If you would like to be considered for this program, please follow the link here, and follow the instructions. The submission form for artists will be located under the “Newsroom” tab in “Press Releases”. Submissions for this program will be collected until Wednesday, November 30, 2016. A panel will review all submissions and then select the 2017 lineup. All artists (selected or not) will be notified by early December of the panel’s decision. Artists not selected may be considered again at the next open call.
Any questions may be directed to Katie Robinson, Marketing Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 260-446-3422.
