The Broward Cultural Council Public Art & Design Program and the Broward County Aviation Department invite professional South Florida artists to apply for rotating exhibition opportunities at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport’s Terminal 2 Art Gallery.

The Terminal 2 Art Gallery is located post-security on the departures level of Terminal 2. The gallery consists of two (2) separate walls, each measuring 24 ft. wide by 8.8 ft. high that face passenger hold rooms.

This gallery space offers South Florida artists an excellent opportunity to exhibit their work in a prominent, high-traffic area in FLL (Terminal 2 processes over 200k passengers monthly). Artists selected will be required to provide artwork for one exhibition covering two (2) 24 ft. wide by 7 ft. high wall areas (a 1.8 ft. high area at the bottom of the wall is reserved for charging stations).​

Each exhibition will run for six months. Artworks demonstrating high artistic quality that appeal to a diverse audience are encouraged. All art forms and mediums will be considered, as long as the subject matter is appropriate for all airport visitors. Due to the layout of the gallery space, artwork that projects more than 6″ from the wall and freestanding works will not be considered. Selected artists must commit to displaying their work for the full length of the exhibit.

Exhibition Budget

A Broward County selected art handler will assist with the installation of the exhibit at no cost to the artist (specialized installation services are not included). Selected artists will receive a flat honorarium of $2,500 upon the conclusion of their exhibition and submittal of a proper invoice.

All professional South Florida based artists eighteen years of age or older, living and working in South Florida (Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach counties) are encouraged to apply.
