explore city treasures
Airport art programs are a source of great cultural pride displayed at major airports across the globe and introduce newcomers to the heart and soul of a community.
The Jacksonville Aviation Authority recognized this need in 1995, and the Jacksonville International Airport Arts Commission was formed. The commission is a volunteer board that oversees the Jacksonville International Airport's rotating art exhibitions, as well as the commission of large-scale, onsite, permanent, public artworks. The intention of this program is to provide a positive distraction, soothe and inspire, and educate visitors regarding the abundant artistic and cultural resources available within our service region including Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam, and Saint Johns counties.
The Jacksonville Aviation Authority and Jacksonville International Airport Arts Commission are committed to showing the work of professional and emerging artists. Its six collective gallery spaces showcase fine art, cultural exhibitions and the history of flight in Jacksonville. All fine artworks are available for purchase, directly supporting the creatives living and working in Northeast Florida.
Through 25 years of arts advocacy, the Jacksonville Aviation Authority and Jacksonville International Airport Arts Commission have showcased more than 700 artists in its exhibits and introduced this region's creatives to more than 130,000,000 visitors.
We will continue to share the spirit of Northeast Florida with the world for generations to come.

Art communicates where words and signs alone cannot. Its presence demonstrates the Aviation Authority's commitment to expression, cultural progression and a thriving regional arts economy.
For the more than five million visitors who pass through Jacksonville International Airport each year, the facility is more than a building of function. Its art programs invite visitors and residents alike to explore the city’s cultural organizations and artistic treasures.
As the Permanent Public Art Program at Jacksonville International Airport grows, it welcomes home and educates future generations in our community.
