For the last 13 years, the Alliance for the Arts and Lee County Port Authority have partnered on a project called Art In Flight, which brings art to the public spaces and the millions of travelers at Southwest Florida International Airport.
The current Art In Flight: My Florida exhibit features the creative perspective of 30 Florida artists and what it means to them to call Florida home. Explore sandy beaches, unique architecture, diverse people, and the vitality of our oceans before even stepping out of the airport! My Florida exhibits from December 2018 – May 2019 on Concourses B and D at the Southwest Florida International Airport. The show will come to the Alliance for the Arts main gallery in June of 2019.
Participating artists in My Florida exhibition include: Robert Alllen, Elisabeth Arena, Jolie Black, Juli Bobman, Annette Brown, Stacey Brown, Martin Casanova, Donna Chase, Patrick Conolly, Lillian Coury, Betsy D’Jamoos, Lisa Duritsch, Alane Enyart, Lydia Fogaras, Janet George, Ehren Gerhard, Imani Gibbs, Julie Griffin, Megan Kissinger, Mariapia Malerba, Deborah Martin, Ellen Miller, Caren Pearson, J.T. Phillippe, Whit Robbins, Dorothy Salcedo, Erik Schlake, MiMi Stirn, Carla Wormington Messerli and Beverly Yankwitt.
“Art inspires and activates our imaginations,” says Alliance exhibitions coordinator Krista Johnson. “This exhibit makes it possible for people to experience art every day and promotes Lee County’s colorful and cultural vibe.”
