John Wayne Airport Community Focus Space Program


John Wayne Airport (JWA) is calling for individual Orange County-related visual artists to apply for solo-style exhibition slots in the JWA Community Focus Space (CFS) program with monthly exhibit openings, beginning October 2018.

CFS exhibition art display cases are located prior to the security checkpoints in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal and are accessible to the visiting public seven days a week. Artwork in these exhibitions is displayed in eight Plexiglas box-covered exhibition cases: two wall cases 5’ tall by 8’ wide by 6” deep and six slanted table-top style cases 35” tall by 80” wide by 4” deep; see illustration on page 2. Exhibitions will run for approximately 30 days each at no cost to the artist. While JWA does not sell exhibited CFS artwork, any sales resulting from the exhibition are 100% to the artist.

To qualify for consideration, artists must have been born, raised or educated in Orange County; or currently live, work or own property in Orange County; and live in any of the following counties: Imperial, Kern, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara or Ventura.
