Arts in the Airport 16th Exhibition

The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to announce we will donate our commissions on sales from the current Arts in the Airport exhibit to Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts since they lost two buildings in the recent Gatlinburg fires and they helped curate the current exhibition.

Celebrating the Centennial of the National Park Service
The Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority (McGhee Tyson Airport) and the Arts & Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville are pleased to present “Arts in the Airport”, a new exhibition featuring selected artwork from 40 artists in the East Tennessee region. Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts are also joining with “Arts in the Airport” to showcase this special art exhibition that celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the National Park Service. Artists were encouraged to submit work inspired by or in celebration of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Works included in the exhibition reflect the beauty of the landscape, wildlife and fauna or reference the rich creative and cultural heritage of the area. The contemporary 2- and 3-dimensional artwork is exhibited in the secured area behind McGhee Tyson Airport’s security gate checkpoint from September 29, 2016 – April 19, 2017.
