2019 Exhibition Call for Proposals
Forces of Nature

San Diego International Airport's Arts Program invites artists, curators, and cultural, community, or educational organizations working in all media to submit proposals that use the four elements as a framework for reexamining San Diego’s environment.

Responses may feature projects that use a material with a direct correlation to an element, that address issues of environmental stewardship, or that reflect on the biodiversity of the region.

Artwork and collections representing this theme will be displayed throughout the airport for up to one year beginning in April 2019. Up to fifteen participating artists and/or organizations will be chosen for the exhibition. San Diego-based artists are strongly encouraged to apply.
