Public Art


A partnership between the Alliance and the Lee County Port Authority which brings art to public spaces at Southwest Florida International Airport.

Upcoming Exhibit



In recent years, it has become increasingly important for all of us to celebrate, value, and strengthen our connections to each other and the world around us. Artists are asked to create work for this exhibition that explores this idea of connection. Artworks will feature traditional media such as painting and drawing but alternative approaches to mixed media are also encouraged.

Non-refundable Entry Fee is $15 for one entry and $30 for 2 or 3 entries for  Alliance for the Arts members – $20 for one entry and $40 for 2 or 3 entries for  nonmembers.

Welcoming You Home, a picture of the lighthouse on Sanibel Island, and White Cottage are located near the Delta Air Lines ticket counter. The larger three-piece painting near the US Airways ticket counter is entitled Iris Pond.
