Thanks to a decade-long partnership between the Alliance for the Arts and the Southwest Florida International Airport millions of travelers get to see works by area artists each year as they arrive and depart. The current exhibit Art In Flight: 10 Year Anniversary, which has been up since last summer, features works by 35 artists. It will be displayed next at the Alliance for their July exhibit with an opening reception on July 8 from 5-7PM.

It will be replaced on June 29 with a new exhibit called MY SKY that features paintings created by Lee County art students. The Alliance invited art teachers to work with their students to create artworks following the theme My Sky. The exhibit encourages young artists to look up and be inspired by the wonders of the universe. Investigate the sun, moon and stars! They were asked to explore close-up images of the sun; gaze through a telescope to study the stars and planets; invent new constellations; or even introduce us to the scientists, artists and others who are inspired by the sky! The Sky is the limit with this exhibit! MY SKY will be on display until June 2017.

Details about the Art In Flight program are available HERE. The Art In Flight: 10 Year Anniversary exhibit opens with a reception on Friday, July 8 from 5-7PM. Artwork by Alliance student artists will be on display in the Member Gallery. Both exhibits remain on display through July 30.
