Based on a study of the economic impact Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has on the Twin Cities, 4.2 million people visit the city annually via the airport.  Of these visitors, approximately, 400,000 are from outside of the US.  This provides exhibitors at MSP Airport a unique opportunity to display their artwork in a setting that is visited by an international audience of thousands. 
This year, more than 125 employees and their immediate family members took advantage of this wonderful opportunity for exposure by entering their artwork in the Sixth Annual NAP Exhibition.  Employees like Brian Travis, an employee for Delta, who entered his mixed media piece entitled “Afternoon Flight”.   Brian’s artwork was awarded First Place in the Intermediate category by the judges and is on display with his fellow participating artists in the Thomson Reuters Concourse C Art Gallery through March 15th.
Airports are a perfect space for displaying artwork, providing worldwide exposure to artists and giving a more meaningful experience to travelers passing through.  This is especially true of NAP shows that place the spotlight on those who often go unnoticed as they work behind the scenes to make the travel experience as smooth as possible.
