CHO likes to welcome visitors in style! The Art in the Airport Program helps do this by creating a traveling experience unique to Central Virginia. The terminal is a great natural gallery and the program is free and available to local and regional artists.
The purpose of the program is to showcase the diversity of arts and culture of the Central Virginia region. Museums, cultural institutions, arts organizations as well as individual artists are afforded opportunities to exhibit their collections. These exhibits are prominently displayed throughout the airport with high visibility exposure to the hundreds of thousands of passengers a year that pass through CHO.
Along with seasonal exhibits, CHO also provides a gallery area for the Charlottesville Albemarle Art Association. Their work can be seen under the lights on the upper level beyond security.
An open call for seasonal exhibitors is continuous. Each approved proposal is assigned an exhibit start date based on availability. Submit your request by emailing Jason Burch at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to your name, pictures of your art and any related description, mission or purpose of your work should be included.
Celebration of Shenandoah National Park!
CHO is pleased to announce the Art in the Airport Summer Exhibit; A Celebration of Shenandoah National Park. Annually, over a million people visit Shenandoah National Park, many passing through CHO from across the nation and many other countries around the world. Shenandoah National Park Trust will be displaying 24 award-winning photographs from a six-county contest held last year, in honor of the national park’s 75th anniversary. The exhibit also includes special artifacts and memorabilia from surrounding counties in Central Virginia.
