NAP Exhibit is Highly Valued at DFW Airport

The Rental Car Center at DFW International Airport had more than 140 pieces of artwork on display during the 8thAnnual NAP Exhibition.
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport had a number of changes for their 8th Annual NAP Exhibit.  Not only did the airport hire a new CEO, but they also had to appoint a new venue coordinator after the departure of their previous coordinator.  With such huge changes in leadership, there can often be a few bumps in the road when transitioning. However, this was not the case at DFW largely due to the hands on guidance our new coordinator, Kori Stolar, received from Guy Bruggeman, DFW’s previous long-time NAP coordinator.  Together they did a tremendous job organizing this annual event.
With more than 140 pieces of artwork submitted, new coordinator Kori immediately recognized the significance the NAP show holds for the participants.  “The National Arts Program® is very important to the employees and volunteers at DFW Airport as it is the one event that includes employees, volunteers and families all combined into a program.” The importance of this event was also not lost on the new CEO, Sean Donohue, who made it a point to attend the reception on April 15th.  In addition presenting the awards to the winners, he also congratulated everyone for participating in this year’s event.
When the success of our shows are largely based on the value our coordinators and management see in the program, it is refreshing to see such an outpouring of support from DFW leadership.  We are sure that the program will only continue to thrive with the involvement of the new staff members!
