2023 Arts In The Airport: Annual High School Visual Arts & Photography Competition
Memphis International Airport is proud to partner with cityCURRENT to produce and host the Virtual Recognition Ceremony for the 16th Annual High School Visual Arts & Photography Competition/Exhibition which will air on WKNO/Channel 10 as a Televised Special later this year.
Artists are invited to showcase their artwork to the community! If you would like to participate in the ceremony by joining us for an interview about your artwork to tell us what inspired you to create it, what you love about Memphis, and more, please click on the button below.
In 2008, Memphis International Airport launched an annual local visual art contest. Each year the top 45 works of art are selected and put on display in the airport’s passenger walkway connectors between concourses. Students are challenged to capture what they love about the city.
Each year a panel of judges evaluates the new works for theme, concept, composition and craftsmanship.
Memphis International Airport receives more than 300 entries, from which 45 are selected to become paintings for the airport’s exhibition along the walkway connectors.
