Atlanta Airport Youth Art Galleries

Celebrate your students’ accomplishments by exhibiting their work at an exhibit that gets 4 million visitors each year! GAEA has 2 galleries at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport which can display up to 220 works.  

Located on Concourse T and on the International Terminal (Concourse E) these exhibit spaces, which are reserved for GAEA members, change 3 times per year providing exhibit opportunities for more than 800 students. While art from k-12 is featured most of the year, college students may also apply.

Participation in the Youth Art Galleries is easy, simply contact Kirby Meng or Katie Meredith to submit your students' work for consideration. Once your student works are chosen, you will receive information about  space for your works and receive a brochure with advice on work size and orientation. You do not even have to mount or frame the work. Professional framers will cut mats to the size of your works and when the exhibit is over you’ll get to keep the mats (TIP: if your work is small send 2 works to fill a frame so your school’s work will be matted and framed together).  

The Youth Art Galleries are in the secured part of the airport so instead of an opening reception, private tours are available weekdays, 9am-3pm. Schedule at least a week in advance (5 person minimum, 35 person maximum, with at least 1 chaperone per 5 children). After seeing your masterpieces, the guides can take you to see the other art exhibits in the airport—This is an exclusive field trip opportunity available to exhibiting schools!   

For additional information or details download our brochure and forms from the GAEA website or e-mail Kirby Meng or Tara Uldrich


All work will be evaluated for exhibition and you will be notified of acceptance.
