Art in the Airport: Dream Big

 

JHS students at Art in the Airport

The first Art in the Airport exhibit of the 2023-2024 school year has opened at Albert J. Ellis Airport! 

For over 10 years, Onslow County Schools has partnered with OAJ to showcase the talents of our visual art students. The newest installment, “Art in the Airport: Dream Big,” opened Monday, November 27, and features the work of 17 of our high school student artists.

The exhibit features an array of colorful artwork that shows the range of dreams and imaginations our students have. Mediums include paint, watercolor, paper collage, and more.  

“Dream Big” will be on display throughout the next couple of months, so take some time to check it out as you travel through OAJ this holiday season!
