The John Wayne Airport Arts Program has announced an open call for local artists to display their work inside the Thomas F. Riley Terminal Community Focus Space Program, beginning in March 2023.  

Artists can now apply for the solo-style exhibition via an application process, found here.

If accepted, Community Focus Space exhibitions will run for approximately one month. Exhibitions will be accessible to the public and departing passengers inside Thomas F. Riley Terminal at John Wayne Airport.

The airport has designated the TFR terminal for the Community Focus Space Program, which features local artists and community organizations, rotating every four to six weeks.

In April, the Community Focus Space showcased Portraits of Integrity by Dennis Carrie.

Applications can be submitted to John Wayne Airport no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 30. Artists will be notified by November 18. 

John Wayne Airport’s Arts Program is overseen by the Airport Arts Commission, which works to showcase museum-quality exhibits and also sponsors a yearly Annual Students Art Contest.
