Alliance for the Arts and the Southwest Florida International Airport Issues Call to Artists for Art in Flight Program 

Submissions due by August 21

FORT MYERS, FL (August 3, 2023)- Alliance for the Arts (AFTA) and the Southwest International Airport (RSW) have continued the longstanding partnership to bring back the Art in Flight exhibition. Selected artworks, from Florida based artists, will be on display in two of the airport’s concourses for a period of 6 months from September 2023-February 2024.

In a rapidly changing world, from technology to the physical environments, it can feel daunting to try to keep up.  For this exhibition, artists are asked to meditate on themes of change through a hopeful lens. Artists are asked to create work that explores ideas of growth, progress, and resilience. Artworks can represent the artist’s personal self-growth or images that relate to growth they see in the world around them. Artworks can be traditional media, such as painting and drawing, as well as alternative approaches such as mixed media or fiber arts.

The call is open to all artists currently residing in the state of Florida. There is a non-refundable entry fee of $25 plus $5 for any additional entries, up to 3. Members of AFTA are eligible to receive $10 off the entry fee with use of code Member10. Individual memberships are $55 and are good for one year. Sign up for membership here.

Interested artists can submit their artwork at
