Call for Artists - 2020 Art in the Airport
Fort Wayne International Airport is currently seeking artists to display their artwork in the galleries at the airport for the 2020 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, Gallery 5-23, on the secured side of the terminal (near the air museum) and in the small gallery, the West 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 enough framed pieces to fill both galleries, and every piece should be framed and labeled. Artists that may not have enough pieces to fill both galleries are free to collaborate with another artist of their choosing. 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.
*Due to anticipated construction within the terminal building throughout the 2020 calendar year, artist display space may be limited, or need to be adjusted at any time. Airport staff reserves the right to change availability within the galleries. Airport staff also reserves the right to cancel or postpone the Art in the Airport program at any time.
If you would like to be considered for this program, please use the online submission form and follow the instructions. Submissions for this program will be collected through Friday, November 1, 2019. Following the end of the submission period all entries will be reviewed. All artists (selected or not) will be notified following the completion of artist selection. Artists not selected may be considered again at the next open call.
Artists are asked to utilize an online submission form, and upload at least 3 examples of work. The form can be found here: http://bit.ly/356j4mO.
Any questions may be directed to Katie Robinson, Marketing Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 260-446-3422.
