En Plane Air Exhibition of Local, Emerging Artists Opens at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport

En Plane Air Exhibition of Local, Emerging Artists Opens at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, On View in Terminal 4 Through December 2022 

Broward County Cultural Division, in partnership with the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and the Dillard Center for the Arts (DCA), presents a new exhibition of artworks by local Advanced Placement (AP) Art & Design students and alumni from Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale.

The exhibition showcases works by 10 students who plan future careers as artists: Lianna Byles, Naima Cornelius, Lewis James, Selena Michel, Mikayle Morrison, Angela Pena, Tayshaun Small, Naimah Rogers, Jennifer Turner, along with Dillard alumna and artist Ruth Burotte, who holds the distinction of being the youngest artist to receive a public art commission from Broward County’s Public Art & Design program. The students have worked under the instruction of Dillard teachers Celestin Joseph, Cynthia Black, and Lauren D’Apuzzo.

The exhibition is located in Terminal 4, Concourse G (post-security) and features high-quality giclee prints of artworks in various mediums. It is curated by Celestin Joseph, an educator and practicing artist, with an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania who teaches AP studio art classes at his alma mater, where he has been strengthening the visual arts program since 1999.

Phil Dunlap, Director of Broward Cultural Division, said “This exhibit shines a spotlight on the tremendous talent in DCA’s distinguished art program and is a perfect example of local agencies working together to enhance our community’s cultural environment through the development of the arts. Cultivating our young, local artists and providing them with the opportunity for their work to be showcased in the airport, is a great way for them to receive exposure and recognition to succeed.”

Since 2017, FLL has dedicated space to present the artistic talent of Broward County youth through the En Plane Air exhibition program. “Exhibits like these are a win-win for the artists, airport visitors, and the County as a whole,” said Mark Gale, CEO/Director of Aviation. “This beautiful exhibit truly enhances the airport experience while giving back to the community.”
