Cultural Council Announces Call to Visual Artists

The Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties, in partnership with the Greater Columbia Metropolitan Airport, is issuing a call to 2-D and 3-D artists for rotating exhibition opportunities  at the airport.

Artists living in the Midlands will have the opportunity to exhibit their 2-D work on walls between the security checkpoint and the food court at the airport for a period of two months beginning in February, 2014.  3-D artists will be provided the opportunity to exhibit their work in a secured exhibition case at the entrance of the atrium from the ticketing concourse.   Travelers to and from Columbia will be introduced to Midlands artists through their work and will be provided information to contact the artist if they wish to purchase any of the pieces.

“The arts provide a great introduction to our area.  We have such fine artists living here, and exhibiting their work to the traveling public will enhance the travel experience to the traveler and provide exposure to the artist and their work,” said Anne Sinclair, chairman of the Richland-Lexington District Airport Commission.  “It’s a win-win-win situation for the public, the airport, and the artist community.”

Interested artists are asked to submit 3 images representative of their work to Norree Boyd-Wicks, executive director of the Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties via e-mail to by Wednesday, January 8, 2014.  Artists will be selected and notified as to their exhibition dates.  All 2-D work must be exhibition ready with proper hanging wire and hooks.  All work, 2-D and 3-D must have proper labeling.  Information about the artist and the exhibited works will be prepared by the Cultural Council and provided to those interested in contacting the artist.

“The Cultural Council is very pleased to partner with the airport in providing arts experiences to travelers and promoting local artists,” said Boyd-Wicks.  “The Cultural Council is celebrating 30 years of service to the arts in the Midlands, and this program is a wonderful addition to our activities.”

The Cultural Council is celebrating 30 years of service to the arts in the Midlands.  For more information, call 803-799-3115.
