Another great night for Arts in the Airport
Monday, May 8, 2017

The 10th annual High School Visual Arts Competition wrapped up at Memphis International Airport on May 4 with an exhibition and announcements of the winning paintings and photographs.

The winning entry for painting was "Memphis King" by Joselyn Kelse of Overton High School (left, top). The winner for photography was "MLK Jr.'s Door" by Roddrick Tooles, also from Overton High (left, bottom). The exhibition is part of the airport’s “Arts in the Airport” program. You can read the official release here. A full list of all the winners may be seen here.
 
Arts in the Airport continues to be a signature program at MEM not just because it supports and encourages local creativity and imagination, but because it makes the airport itself a better place. For the art exhibition, more than 40 finalists in the painting competition along with almost 30 photography finalists get to have their work displayed in the airport for a year, where millions of travelers may enjoy them. Each piece will be displayed with the students' names and the titles of their work. It's a great way to recognize and acknowledge the efforts of the student artists while providing the airport with something uniquely local.

MEM hasn't physically changed much in the last 30 years (that's about to change), but the arrival of new student art has become an annual refresher -- and a reminder to everyone who passes through here of the beauty and diversity that makes Memphis worth celebrating.

Here are just a few more examples. Thanks again to everyone who participated, who supported these talented students and teachers, and to the airport staff and airport vendors for making this such a memorable evening.
