The Airport Art Program is proud to present three Youth Art Galleries at Hartsfield-Jackson
Atlanta International Airport. Georgia students, from kindergarten to twelfth grade,
are given the opportunity to have their artwork professionally exhibited to an ever-changing
audience in the millions. In return these talented youth provide new artwork every
three months to enrich the airport with upbeat perspectives, creativity and visual
The first gallery (on Concourse T) opened in the summer of 1997. In December
of 1998 a second gallery opened in the International Concourse (Concourse E).
Both of these galleries are coordinated by the Airport Art Program in partnership
with the Georgia Art Education Association (GAEA). The GAEA is committed to improving
the conditions of teaching art across Georgia. They provide workshops and exhibition
possibilities for Georgia's art students, and hold conferences twice a year for
teachers. The GAEA also works with citizen groups and government agencies to secure
funding and support for the visual and performing arts in schools.
The third Youth Art Gallery is located on Concourse D, where the Airport
Art Program collaborates with the Youth Art Connection of downtown Atlanta. The
Youth Art Connection (YAC) is a part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta.
YAC uses the arts as a means to connect with underserved children and teens in order
to address issues related to youth culture. They also collaborate with the community
to provide innovative and challenging cultural enrichment programs for young people.
