Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is seeking youth and student artist work for their Mythical Creatures public exhibition. The CLE Temporary Art Exhibition Program creates an airport ambiance unique to the Cleveland Plus Region. The mission of the Youth Art Program is to provide young artists with the opportunity to showcase their artwork in a gallery that receives thousands of visitors daily. CLE Youth Art Gallery is located on the ticketing level near Security Checkpoint A. The art gallery changes up to two times per year and youth are invited to submit theme based artwork for review and approval by an Art Review Panel. Each approved submission is exhibited in the Youth Art Gallery based on the exhibition calendar. Approved submissions are also featured on the airport’s website.


SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Friday, November 10 at 5 P.M.

EXHIBITION DATES: December 1, 2017 - September 30,2018

The world is full of stories about mythical creatures, legendary beasts and supernatural and godlike beings. Inspired by living animals or fossils, humans have brought mythical creatures to life in stories, songs, and works of art. From the powerful dragon to the soaring phoenix, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is challenging all Northeast Ohio students to grab their favorite art supply and use your own creativity to create your own mythical creature.

Selected artwork and items must be exhibition quality. Items and artwork will be evaluated and considered for the exhibit. CLE will mat and frame all artwork in Nielson metal frames, if needed. If selected, items will be returned after the exhibition is un-installed.
