ARTS IN THE AIRPORT

McGhee Tyson Airport / 2055 Alcoa Hwy., Alcoa, TN April 29 - October 18th

The Arts & Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville and the Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority (McGhee Tyson Airport) present a semi-annual exhibition entitled Arts in the Airport. This juried exhibition was developed to allow regional artists to compete and display work in the most visited site in the area. The selected art features contemporary 2- and 3-dimensional artwork and is exhibited in the secured area behind McGhee Tyson Airport’s security gate checkpoint for six months at a time. Approximately 35-40 works comprise each exhibition. Work is normally available for viewing only by visitors flying in or out of the airport. Otherwise, artists and their guests may view the exhibition during the opening reception and by appointment with the Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority. To make an appointment, contact Becky Huckaby, Director of Public Relations, at (865) 342-3014.
