Sponsored by The National Arts Program and the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, “Showcasing the Artists Within Orlando International Airport” features paintings, photography, sculpture, crafts and mixed media created by airport employees and their families.

Phil Brown, the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority’s Chief Executive Officer, congratulated Orlando International Airport employees and their family members at the February 27th reception and awards presentation for the 14th annual exhibition.

Awards were given in a variety of categories and judged by noted Central Florida artists, Que Throm and Red Huber. Awards also were presented in the “People’s Choice” and “Best of Show” categories.

The entire exhibit will be on display through March 31, 2020 in the Main Terminal, Level 3, near the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority offices.
