CLE’s Temporary Art Exhibition Program is a free initiative available to artists. The purpose of this program is to showcase the diversity of arts and culture of Northeast Ohio. Individual artists, cultural institutions and arts organizations are afforded opportunities to exhibit their collections of original artwork and photography in the airport. Submissions are reviewed by an Artists Review Panel and each approved proposal is assigned an exhibit start date based on the exhibition calendar. The duration of exhibits is up to six months depending on the nature of the exhibit. Selected exhibitors will not be compensated; however, installation and curatorial support will be provided as needed. Artists will also be featured at the art site as well as on the airport’s website.
