Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI Marshall Airport) is currently constructing the D/E Connector and Security Checkpoint. This project creates a secure side connection between Concourse D and Concourse E, allows international arrivals at gates D1-D3, and creates a new Security Screening Checkpoint for all Concourses D and E passengers. With the large passenger traffic that will utilize the new facility, BWI Marshall Airport recognizes the opportunity to showcase the region’s talented art community with a gallery space along the connector. BWI Marshall Airport invites all artists (ages 18 and older) residing in the State of Maryland or the District of Columbia to submit up to three digital images of artwork that can be reproduced and printed on large-scale fabric panels to be displayed within the D/E Connector for one of four six-month exhibits. The jurors will consider any two-dimensional work of art, in reproducible format, following the guidelines below.
Jurors will select 28 images from the entries, to be displayed in four shows of seven pieces lasting 6 month each, over a five-year period.
